The Saturday picture shows return to the Public Hall tomorrow on March 8th with two widely acclaimed films that were released in December 2007.
The afternoon film Alvin and the Chipmunks (Cert U) starts at 5.00pm and is about the Grammy Award-winning animated music group created in the 1950s. The animated mini pop stars are brought to life and given their big-screen debut in this family comedy. A struggling songwriter named Dave Seville finds success when he comes across a trio of singing chipmunks: mischievous leader Alvin, brainy Simon and chubby, impressionable Theodore. They impress him with their singing talent and, seeing the opportunity for success, both human and chipmunks make a pact for them to sing his songs.
Older readers may remember The Chipmunks' pop record Ragtime Cowboy Joe, which was regularly played on Uncle Mac's Children's Favourites and reached number 11 in the top twenty in 1959.
The evening film, which starts at 7.30 pm, is The Kite Runner (Cert 12A). This film is based on one of the most acclaimed novels in recent memory. It is a profoundly emotional tale of friendship, family, devastating mistakes and redeeming love.
In a divided country on the verge of war, two childhood friends, Amir and Hassan, are about to be torn apart forever. It's a glorious afternoon in Kabul and the skies are bursting with the exhilarating joy of a kite-fighting tournament. But in the aftermath of the day's victory, one boy's fearful act of betrayal will mark their lives forever and set in motion an epic quest for redemption. Now, after 20 years of living in America, Amir returns to a perilous Afghanistan under the Taliban's iron-fisted rule to face the secrets that still haunt him and take one last daring chance to set things right.
Prices for Alvin and the Chipmunks are £2.50 for children and £5 for adults. The price for The Kite Runner is £5. Tickets are available from The Post Office, Williams' Newsagents and Audlem Tree House.
