Kids’ Club: Chicken Run (U)

The beloved Aardman claymation adventure, with a roost of chickens plotting their escape from a dim farmer and his maniacal wife. See it for £3 at our Kids’ Club screenings.

Ginger (Julia Sawalha) and her fellow chickens are doomed to a life of egg-laying on a Yorkshire farm. When a flamboyant American rooster, Rocky Rhodes (Mel Gibson) arrives on the scene, the hens hope he can teach them to fly to freedom. However, when a chicken pie-making machine is installed on the farm, their need becomes urgent and they must work together to devise other means of escape. Dreamworks' award-winning stop-motion comedy has all the charm of Wallace and Gromit and is a delight for all ages.
