Lunch with the girls

What’s better than lunch with the girls? A chick flick to follow. Perhaps even keep the food and wine flowing and upgrade to Gold Class. Here are the latest the girls will love:

  • The Broken Hearts Club: in cinemas 16 July- A 20-something art gallery assistant living in New York City, who also happens to be an emotional hoarder gets dumped by her latest boyfriend and is then inspired to create The Broken Heart Gallery.

Family night out:

For the ultimate family night out, you can’t beat the trusty combination of dinner and a crowd-pleasing new release.

Leave the entertaining to the big screen - popcorn for them, plus downtime for you, everyone wins. Welcome to the latest and greatest kids’ releases:

  • Sonic the Hedgehog 2: now showing- Live-action adventure comedy based on the global blockbuster videogame franchise from Sega that centres on the infamously brash bright blue hedgehog. The film follows the (mis)adventures of Sonic as he navigates the complexities of life on Earth with his newfound human best friend.
  • Red Shoes and the Seven Dwarfs: now showing- Princes who have been turned into Dwarfs seek the red shoes of a lady in order to break the spell, although it will not be easy. A parody with a twist.
