    MAC Film: Pushchair Pictures

    Selected Thursdays, 11am

    Introducing ‘Pushchair Pictures’ on selected Thursdays at 11am. These screenings are aimed at parents or carers who want to enjoy a film morning but are also adapted to be kinder to babies too!

    We lower the sound and dim the lights so it’s less daunting for your little ones but also means you get a proper cinema experience and catch that movie you’ve been meaning to see!

    May 21st, 11am & 7:30pm

    MAC Matinee Special: Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake - recorded live at Sadler's Wells
    Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lakecomes to cinemas with a fresh look for the 21st century and is ‘as bold and beautiful as ever’ (★★★★★ Telegraph).  This thrilling, audacious and witty production is perhaps still best known for replacing the female corps-de-ballet with a menacing male ensemble, which shattered convention, turned tradition upside down and took the dance world by storm.
