AS THE kids go back to school, parents will be pleased to have some wind-down time!

In the next few months as we head into autumn there will be an exciting range of films released from Disney’s Maleficent Mistress of Evil to Downton Abbey and the latest Joker film.

This is in addition to our upcoming Live Shows from the Royal Opera House and the West End!

It: Chapter Two (15) will be showing at the Picture House from September 6. This is the sequel to the 2017 film It, both based on the 1986 novel It by Stephen King.

Twenty-seven years after the Losers Club defeated Pennywise (Bill Skarsgård), It returns to terrorize the town of Derry once more.

Now adults, the Losers have long since gone their separate ways. However, kids are disappearing again, so Mike (Isaiah Mustafa), the only one of the group to remain in their hometown, calls the others home.

Damaged by the experiences of their past, they must each conquer their deepest fears to destroy Pennywise once and for all... putting them directly in the path of the clown that has become deadlier than ever.

After the success of It (2017) I bet you’re all on the edge of your seats ready and waiting to find out if will we witness the end of It? Float on down here from the 6th to find out who wins!
