The Greatest Showman (PG)

Curtains up, hit the lights - it’s showtime! Broadway veteran Hugh Jackman returns to his song-and-dance roots in a dazzling feelgood musical about taking risks and chasing your dreams. Inspired by the life of show-business pioneer P. T. Barnum, The Greatest Showman charts one man’s rise from nothing to create a circus spectacle that would become a worldwide sensation - ‘The Greatest Show On Earth’. Jackman stars as the down-on-his-luck Barnum, who gathers a motley troupe of extraordinary performers and changes the face of entertainment for ever. Strutting their stuff alongside him in this rags-to-riches tale are Michelle Williams, Zac Efron and singer Zendaya, performing catchy original music penned by La La Land duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. Friday, Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday at 6pm and 8.30pm, Saturday at 3.30pm, 6pm and 8.30pm and Tuesday at 2pm and 8pm.

Ferdinand (U)

Ferdinand is a big bull with an even bigger heart. He enjoys the finer things in life – flowers, smaller fellow animals and the like. But after he’s accidently stung by a bee which makes him charge rampantly across the fields, he’s captured by brigands who see a big future for him fighting in Madrid’s bullring. Determined to return to his beloved family in rural Spain, Ferdinand rallies a team of misfits and tries to escape. Working from Munro Leaf’s bestselling 1930s children’s book, writer-director Carlos Saldanha has applied his considerable creative talents to deliver another animated crowd-pleaser. Its stars include Kate McKinnon, David Tennant and Bobby Cannavale, with wrestler-turned-actor John Cena voicing the misunderstood steer. Saturday at 1pm.
