Cinema – Mr Peabody and Sherman
Mr Peabody is a super-intelligent beagle (voiced by Ty Burrell) resident in a spectacular New York apartment who has been granted the right to adopt a human boy: this is seven-year-old Sherman (voiced by Max Charles). Mr Peabody is a finicky and precise but very caring foster parent, with a slight resemblance to Dr Niles Crane in the 90s TV show Frasier, as played by David Hyde Pierce. He wants to complete young Sherman’s historical education with a time-machine he has invented, allowing them both to visit various important eras.
Monday, 7th to Friday 11th July
Open to boys and girls of all levels aged 4-13. Sing, Dance, Act, build self-esteem and confidence all while making new friends and having fun. For prices and booking call 021 4377900
Cinema – The Lego Movie
Saturday, 19th July at 2pm Cost: €5 per ticket
A thrilling, consistently funny, all-ages extravaganza, The Lego Movie is virtually critic proof. It’s got laser sharks. And robot pirates. And a uni-kitty. And Batman. The project’s theoretically cold, corporate, plastic heart – the movie is fashioned from LEGO® after all – is deftly offset by an anarchic, anti-authoritarian theme. Emmet (Chris Pratt) is an every-brick construction worker who finds himself at the heart of a vast conspiracy as orchestrated by President Business (Will Ferrell) and his evil, schizoid henchman, Bad Cop (Liam Neeson).
