Matinee Macabre Film Festival is aimed at the entire family. Take an opportunity to watch classic, well loved films that are darkly delicious!

The Black Cauldron | 10:15am - 11:35am

In the land of Prydain, lowly pig herder Taran (Grant Bardsley) dreams of becoming a gallant knight. Young Taran receives his heroic calling when the evil Horned King (John Hurt) kidnaps Hen-Wren, a prophesying pig that had been entrusted to Taran. Now, with help from his furry sidekick Gurgi and Princess Eilonwy, Taran must locate the magical black cauldron before the Horned King is able to use its mystical powers to summon an army of the undead.

Mirrormask | 12:00pm - 1:40pm

Helen is fed up with life at her parents' circus and desperately wants to get away. One day she loses her temper and wishes her mother dead - and is mortified to see her cruel wish seemingly begin to come true. She realises that she'd do anything to retract her `curse', but instead finds herself thrown suddenly into a surreal landscape that's by turns beautiful, sinister and scary.

Legend | 2:15pm - 3:50pm

Darkness (Tim Curry) seeks to create eternal night by destroying the last of the unicorns. Jack (Tom Cruise) and his friends do everything possible to save the world and Princess Lili (Mia Sara) from the hands of Darkness. Enter a world of unicorns, magic swamps, dwarfs and rainbows.

Corpse Bride | 4:15pm - 5:30pm

Victor (Johnny Depp) and Victoria's (Emily Watson) families have arranged their marriage. Though they like each other, Victor is nervous about the ceremony. While he's in a forest practicing his lines for the wedding, a tree branch becomes a hand that drags him to the land of the dead. It belongs to Emily, who was murdered after eloping with her love and wants to marry Victor. Victor must get back aboveground before Victoria marries the villainous Barkis Bittern (Richard E. Grant).
