Are you there God? It's me, Margaret

Eleven-year-old Margaret moves to a new town and starts to contemplate everything about life, friendship and adolescence. She relies on her mother, Barbara, who offers loving support, and her grandmother, Sylvia, who's coming to terms with finding happiness in the next phase of her life. Questions of identity, one's place in the world, and what brings meaning to life soon brings them closer together than ever before.

    The Little Mermaid

    In Disney's beguiling animated romp, rebellious 16-year-old mermaid Ariel (Jodi Benson) is fascinated with life on land. On one of her visits to the surface, which are forbidden by her controlling father, King Triton, she falls for a human prince. Determined to be with her new love, Ariel makes a dangerous deal with the sea witch Ursula (Pat Carroll) to become human for three days. But when plans go awry for the star-crossed lovers, the king must make the ultimate sacrifice for his daughter.

    "A smashing wee cinema - better than some mainland picture houses"

    Summary review by JJ

    A lovely little cinema situated to the rear of the victorian Winter Gardens building (Discovery Centre) with somewhere around 80-100 seats (I didn't count them!) which can be reserved in advance. Small hatch serving fresh popcorn, drinks and snacks - just like the old days before the multiplexes arrived. There's only one film showing per day, with blockbusters changing every week or two - but they are on the ball with new releases and tend to stick with more family friendly titles. Perfect for a rainy day.
