Friday 28 July: Mama Mia! (PG)
Donna (Meryl Streep), an independent hotelier in the Greek islands, is preparing for her daughter’s wedding with the help of two old friends. Meanwhile Sophie, the spirited bride, has a plan. She secretly invites three men from her mother’s past in hope of meeting her real father and having him escort her down the aisle on her big day.
Saturday 29 July: Jurassic Park (PG)
This classic dino-adventure film returns to street in a BIG way.
Sunday 30 July: The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (12A)
A group of British retirees (Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy) decide to outsource their retirement to exotic – and less expensive – India. Lured by advertisements for the newly restored Marigold Hotel and imagining a life of leisure in lush surroundings, they arrive and find that the Marigold is actually a shell of its former self. Though their new home is not quite what they had imagined, the retirees find that life and love can begin again when they let go of their pasts.
