Wallace & Gromit [PG] - FREE outdoor screenings
We The Curious Big Screen, Millennium Square
Cracking news, Gromit!
We The Curious Big Screen invites you to join us on Millennium Square during the Festival Of What If as we celebrate the classic works of Aardman with two days of FREE Wallace & Gromit film screenings!
Pack some cheese and crackers and head over to the We The Curious Big Screen on Millennium Square for a grand day out of hilarious animation. Deckchair seating will be available all day on a first come, first served basis, so feel free to bring along your own blankets/camping chairs/beanbags!
And remember to dress for the weather - this is an outdoor event, so be prepared for changes in weather!
In response to feedback from a number of people interested in the event, we have decided that our rescheduled screenings on Monday 30th July will now be screened in the early evening.
This is to ensure that the most Wallace & Gromit fans possible can enjoy these classic short films with us, whether they work 9-5, have the holidays off with their kids, or whether they just don't do early mornings!
Film programme (26 & 30 July):
A Grand Day Out - 26 July 10.30am / 30 July 5.30pm
"Wallace and Gromit enjoy a day out with a difference when a quest to find cheese prompts a visit to the moon. Despite a few hiccups with their homemade rocket, the duo makes a successful lunar landing, arriving just in time for lunch."
The Wrong Trousers - 26 July 12pm / 30 July 6pm
"When money troubles prompt Wallace to take in a lodger, life at West Wallaby Street gets complicated for poor Gromit. Forced out of his room to make way for a cool-as-a-cucumber penguin called Feathers McGraw, it’s not long before he feels well and truly usurped as Wallace’s faithful companion."
A Close Shave - 26 July 2pm / 30 July 6.30pm
"Business is booming for Wallace and Gromit’s new window-cleaning service and life’s pretty dandy at West Wallaby Street, especially when the new venture introduces Wallace to the fragrant Wendolene, owner of the local wool shop – and a rather ferocious mutt named Preston."
A Matter of Loaf and Death - 26 July 4pm / 30 July 7pm
"Another day dawns at West Wallaby Street and Wallace and Gromit are up with the birds, making bread for their latest enterprise – the ‘Top Bun’ bakery. With robotic kneading arms in place (another of Wallace’s madcap inventions) and a windmill on the roof, they’ve got a very professional set-up going."
