The Iron Giant (PG)

With an endearing story and stunning animation, this family classic is an unmissable big-screen treat.

A modern animated classic, The Iron Giant was the directorial debut of Brad Bird, who would later write and direct Pixar’s smash hit The Incredibles. Its endearing story is only outshone by the stunning animation.

Based on the 1968 Ted Hughes novel The Iron Man, the film sees a giant metal machine drop from the sky and into a small town in Maine, where he finds a friend named Hogarth. 20 years after its original release, this remains an unmissable movie for all the family.

Free family activities will be available before and after this screening.


This screening will be introduced by a special guest—details to be confirmed.
