Great February Half Term Fun for the Family
We are delighted to welcome you to Lymm Youth and Community Centre this Winter Half Term for a showing of the wonderfully enjoyable ‘Paddington 2.’ This is the perfect film for a Winter’s Afternoon and the Community Centre is situated in the centre of the Village and is easily accessible to all.
‘Paddington 2 finds Paddington happily settled with the Brown family in Windsor Gardens, where he has become a popular member of the community, spreading joy and marmalade wherever he goes. While searching for the perfect present for his beloved Aunt Lucy’s hundredth birthday, Paddington spots a unique pop-up book in Mr. Gruber’s antique shop, and embarks upon a series of odd jobs to buy it. But when the book is stolen, it’s up to Paddington and the Browns to unmask the thief’.
Paddington is based on the best-selling and internationally adored series of children’s stories by British author Michael Bond, which have sold more than 35 million copies worldwide, been translated into over 40 languages and captured the imagination of children and adults around the globe.
‘This is one sequel it’s a pleasure to review…….
The movie gets off to a lighthearted start, re-introducing us to Paddington and his uber-clean, uber-colorful, uber-friendly London several years after the 2014 adventure ended.
Paddington 2 is almost too delightful to poke holes in; watching it with the same mindset one reserves for animated fare is the best way to enjoy it.
Paddington 2 is a charming early-year offering ….. no cultural leap is required to fall in love with the bear and enjoy his adventures. As intended, the movie will enthral children while providing enough sophisticated titbits to keep adults engaged. The final cut has been dedicated to author Michael Bond, Paddington’s creator, who died last year at the age of 91. His legacy will live on in the hearts and minds of children of all ages (not to mention in another movie, which has already been greenlighted).”
