Using stunning digital 3D technology, the film’s animation blends seamlessly with real-life, making for breathtaking visuals. Disney’s third retelling of A Christmas Carol, this lustrous production is not one to be missed.

This spine-tingling Doomsday blockbuster is not for the superstitious. Never before has a singular date in history been pinpointed by so many cultures, religions, scientists and governments. Pegged as the end of the world, 2012 takes film goers on an epic adventure to global cataclysm. With eye-popping sequences of global destruction, parents should treat the PG13 rating with caution. For older viewers, white knuckles on the seat edge is guaranteed, and the lasting effects of this heroic struggle for survival will linger long after you leave the cinema.

When his foolish ways endanger the lives of the other woodland animals, it will take plenty of courage and teamwork to save them from a trio of evil farmers. Good old fashioned fun.

The Princess and the Frog

Finally. A Disney film like they used to be. In the style of the Disney films of yore, The Princess and the Frog blends classic Disney animation (think: Pinocchio, Cinderella) with modern comedy stylings to create a glorious rendering of this timeless fairytale favourite. Set in New Orleans, we follow the tale of a beautiful girl named Tiana  and a frog prince who desperately wants to be human again.
