Lons­dale, An­nan

For the mid-term hol­i­days there is a new an­i­mated fea­ture for the kids

from Warner an­i­ma­tion. High in the moun­tains above the clouds live a com­mu­nity of Yeti, hid­den from hu­mans who are only known from leg­ends. Migo is the Yeti son of the leader who ac­ci­den­tally finds a young boy whom he calls Smallfoot. Ridiculed by the Yeti vil­lagers when he tries to ex­plain, he is ban­ished and has to find the hu­man vil­lage for proof. For Hal­loween fun there is

a se­quel to the 2015 orig­i­nal. The oblig­a­tory two friends Sonny and Sam find an old book called Haunted Hal­lowe’en, in a creepy old house no one would dream of vis­it­ing. They open the book and up pops Slappy the malev­o­lent ven­tril­o­quist’s dummy who plans a Hal­loween Apoc­a­lypse with all his mon­ster hordes. Jack Black moves to this one from his re­cent House with a Clock to reprise his role as R L Stine, the au­thor of the book. Rowan Atkin­son is back in

cre­at­ing chaos wher­ever he goes and Lady Gaga scores a per­sonal tri­umph in the new

gen­er­ously pay­ing trib­ute to Judy Gar­land while Bradley Cooper re-moulds the fa­mil­iar story for an in­sight into the pop world of to­day. This is only at The Lons­dale.

Live events lead off tonight and again on Sun­day with

as the eter­nal rock star re­vives all his old hits to cel­e­brate 60 years in show­busi­ness. On Mon­day it is a trip to the Royal Bal­let for the lav­ish pro­duc­tion of the bal­let May­er­ling.

Robert Burns Cen­tre Film The­atre

The cin­ema is alive with the sound of sin­ga­long ver­sions of the two top mu­si­cals of the year be­gin­ning tonight with, of course,

plus screen­ings on Tues­day and Wed­nes­day. To­mor­row morn­ing and af­ter­noon plus morn­ing shows next Tues­day and Wed­nes­day it is Hugh Jack­man strut­ting his stuff as P.T. Bar­num in

Singing is not oblig­a­tory but I’ll bet you won’t be able to re­sist.

The Mon­day al­ter­na­tive is the Ital­ian film, in which a 12-year-old girl, in love with her hand­some class­mate, jour­neys be­tween fan­tasy and re­al­ity in search of him when he dis­ap­pears. As she trav­els deeper into en­chanted forests the mys­tery as­sumes dis­turb­ing qual­i­ties.

Death by Au­dio was the name of a venue for un­der­ground mu­sic in New York from 2005 to 2014. The film re­veals its ori­gins and the demise. The film is show­ing in as­so­ci­a­tion with Dum­fries Mu­sic Con­fer­ence and tick­ets are at the spe­cial price of £4.

is the Fri­day film tonight of­fer­ing plenty of griz­zly thrills while on Satur­day

The re­al­ity is that a gang of age­ing crim­i­nals hood­winked the po­lice and the se­cu­rity ser­vice by bring­ing off the most au­da­cious rob­bery that would have chal­lenged a gang half their age. Of course jus­tice tri­umphed but the film leaves us with sneak­ing ad­mi­ra­tion.

The Live event next Mon­day is a visit to the Royal Bal­let for a per­for­mance of, May­er­ling, Ken­neth MacMil­lan’s lav­ishly staged story of dan­ger­ous de­sires, fam­ily se­crets and po­lit­i­cal in­trigues in­spired by true his­tor­i­cal events.
