Family fun in Cockermouth this spring half term with Paddington 2 screening at the Kirkgate

After the resounding success of his first screen outing, the irresistible bear turns detective in this second cinematic interpretation of the beloved children’s books.

Paddington is happily settled with the Brown family in Windsor Gardens, where he has become a popular member of the community, spreading joy and marmalade wherever he goes. While searching for the perfect present for his beloved Aunt Lucy's hundredth birthday, Paddington spots a unique pop-up book in Mr. Gruber's antique shop, and embarks upon a series of odd jobs to buy it. But when the book is stolen, it's up to Paddington and the Browns to unmask the thief...

Helmed by twice BAFTA nominated director Paul King the film features Hugh Bonneville, Julie Walters and Hugh Grant.

Based on the best-selling and internationally adored series of children's stories by British author Michael Bond, which have sold more than 35 million copies worldwide, Paddington has been translated into over 40 languages and captured the imagination of children and adults around the globe.

“A family adventure that's the right sort of heartwarming, delivering real human emotion through the medium of a small bear” - Time Out

“The film's deceptive genius is not just a renewed faithfulness to the spirit of Bond's books but the clever way it is set in the present day and yet constantly harks back to the more innocent times when the stories were written” - The Mail on Sunday

''Every bit as bright, funny and cosy as its predecessor.'' - Sunday Times


Full price: £6
Concessions (u18/students): £5
