Looking for a few hours of escape this half term? We’ve got everyone covered

Family films for keeping everyone entertained

It’s getting pretty chilly outside, but you can still head off on an adventure with your little ones this half-term. At Vue we’ve got a brilliant line-up of family friendly entertainment, from long-awaited sequels and animated animal escapades to TV favourites hitting the big screen.

There’s CGI talking dogs, cake-baking elves, a fav comic character and more to choose from. Your kids will love discovering new friends — and hanging out with old ones. Meanwhile, you get the chance to sit back, switch off and enjoy escaping with them for a couple of blissful hours. Here’s what’s on...

THE FILMS

The Elfkins

What’s this then?
An animated adventure in which elves emerge from their underground hideaway, befriend a down-on-his-luck baker and help rescue the fortunes of a cake shop. Think Trolls meets Ratatouille.
They’ll love:
Discovering a magical, secret world of elves who rarely come out of hiding. There’s lovable characters, bright colours and lots of delicious sweet treats to drool over.
You’ll love:
The feel-good vibes. The story is inspired by a German folk tale that's been a favourite bedtime story for generations. And if your baking style is more soggy bottoms than
showstopper you'll appreciate the elves’ hilarious cake-making attempts.

Cats & Dogs: Paws Unite

What’s this then?
It's been ten years since Cats and Dogs 2 and the Great Truce, which led to pooches and felines living happily together. Now, a villainous parrot is stirring up trouble and the pet world is — quite literally — fighting like cats and dogs again.
They’ll love:
Talking dogs! Talking cats! Talking parrots (ok, not so revolutionary). Dogs that wear glasses and have wind issues. It will have them giggling non-stop.
You’ll love:
Come for the scarily realistic CGI pets, stay for the funny lines and silly adventure.

Dennis & Gnasher: Unleashed!

What’s this then?
Two CBBC favourites — and all time legends — are coming to the big screen! See Dennis, his dog Gnasher and all their pals like you’ve never seen them before.
They’ll love:

The chance to see the characters they love bigger and better than ever. Dennis and all his scrapes are even more exciting when they’re supersized.
You’ll love:
These Beano favourites have been around for 70 years, so chances are you loved them as a kid, too.

Two by Two: Overboard

What’s this then?
Sequel to 2015's animated adventure Two By Two (Ooops Noah is Gone) — which reimagined the story of Noah’s Ark from the perspective of two clumsy misfit creatures. This time they're back on the boat…until they get accidentally thrown overboard.
They’ll love:
Spotting lots of animals they recognise — and a few they don’t (Nestrians and Grymps, anyone?) Plus a ton of silly humour.
You’ll love:
The heartwarming tale of friendship and people (ok, animals) helping each other out. Because we all need a bit of that right now.

Onward

What’s this then?
The latest from Pixar, exploring familial love and loss through the medium of magic and a disembodied pair of legs.
They’ll love:
The world that Pixar has created, full of enchanted creatures (trash-eating unicorns anyone?) and endless slapstick involving... a pair of disembodied legs.
You’ll love:
The story of two sons trying to connect with their dad and a suburban world in which it turns out magic can’t solve all your problems. Plus... a pair of disembodied legs.

100% Wolf

What’s this then?
The tale of an adolescent werewolf whose first transformation reveals him to be less a ferocious creature of the night than a cuddly, coiffed poodle. He has until the next full moon to prove he has the heart of a wolf in the body of a floof, or he’ll be cast out of the pack forever.
They’ll love:
Talking dogs! Need we say more??
You’ll love:
Tuning in for the sassy asides.
