Recently I spent an evening in this gorgeous little cinema to watch this Christmas's family treat Paddington. It really did feel that the lovable bear had come home.
The film is magical from start to finish, a couple of times during the film it tugged on my heart strings an a tear came to the eye, it also had lots of fun and laughter and made my heart smile lots.
Paddington finds himself leaving his beloved Peru and Aunt Lucy to embark on a huge adventure to London. Homeless and lonely he is found by the Brown family....
here he is having tea & cake with Mr Brown (played by English gent Hugh Bonneville)
Paddington is desperate to find the original explorer who visited Peru many years before and The Brown family offer their help in this, although thinks don't go to plan and he finds himself out in London on his own in the rain at Buckingham Palace.
I thoroughly enjoyed this film, it was feel good, funny and had a fabulous villain in the guise of Nicole Kidman who plays a villainous taxidermist who resides in the bowels of the Natural History Museum. Great supporting cast & characters from Julie Walters, Peter Capaldi, Sally Hawkins, Jim Broadbent and voices of Ben Wishaw, Imelda Staunton and Michael Gambon.
Paddington has been making a surprise appearance in the yellow store during December much to the delight of children big & small!
