Fam­ily fun on screen

Southern Telegraph - - Kids Activity Guide -

En­ter­tain­ing the fam­ily dur­ing the school hol­i­days is easy thanks to a fan­tas­tic se­lec­tion of movies at United Cine­mas Rock­ing­ham.

One of the many films sure to keep chil­dren happy is Despicable Me 3.

The ad­ven­tures of Gru, Lucy and their adorable daugh­ters Margo, Edith and Agnes (and of course, the min­ions), con­tinue in the third in­stal­ment of the hit fran­chise.

Our heroes face a new neme­sis, Balt­hazar Bratt — a for­mer child star who has grown up to be ob­sessed with the char­ac­ter he played in the 1980s.

Another child-friendly re­lease is Cars 3.

Blind­sided by a new gen­er­a­tion of blaz­ing-fast rac­ers, the le­gendary Light­ning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wil­son) is sud­denly pushed out of the sport he loves.

To get back in the game, he will need the help of an ea­ger young race tech­ni­cian, Cruz Ramirez (voiced by Cris­tela Alonzo), with her own plan to win, and in­spi­ra­tion from the late Fab­u­lous Hud­son Hor­net and a few un­ex­pected turns.

For su­per­hero fans, the movie Spi­der-Man: Home­com­ing is a must-see.

Fol­low­ing the events of Cap­tain Amer­ica: Civil War, Peter Parker tries to bal­ance his life in high school with his ca­reer as the web-sling­ing su­per­hero Spi­der-Man. For fast-paced ac­tion, do not go past Trans­form­ers: The Last Knight. Hu­mans are at war with the Trans­form­ers, and Op­ti­mus Prime is gone. The key to sav­ing the fu­ture lies buried in the se­crets of the past and the hid­den his­tory of Trans­form­ers on Earth.

Lovers of the book se­ries will also en­joy the new­est in­stal­ment in the se­ries, Di­ary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul.

This year, United Cine­mas will again be screen­ing some of the lat­est box of­fice hits in its out­door set­ting.

The open-air cinema, di­rectly be­hind the orig­i­nal United Cine­mas build­ing, has room for 300 deckchairs and has be­come a hit with Rock­ing­ham fam­i­lies.

Pic­ture: Ai­den Boy­ham

United Cine­mas team mem­bers Han­nah Coun­cil, Mon­ica Jensen and Ben Sed­don take ad­van­tage of the new open-air cinema.
