"Matilda the Musical manages to not just stand its own against the original but uses updated technology to give the present generation their own Matilda, and the previous generations a fancier and more musical walk down memory lane." - Avinash Ramachandran, Cinema Express

Re-live the magic of Roald Dahl's unforgettable childhood story by watching the dazzling new musical adaption, based on the hit theatre show with songs written by comedian/songwriter Tim Minchin. Matilda is a young girl gifted with a keen intellect and special powers that she must use to deal with her crude, distant family and free her kind teacher from their sadistic, child-hating headmistress (played by an unrecognizable Emma Thompson). Sing along to the super catchy soundtrack in our open air-cinema and share the love for the tale that has captured the imagination of children and adults alike, all over the world. A family ticket is available for this screening- further information can be found on the booking page. 

"This musical adaptation of Roald Dahl’s novel is a jolt of sour candy guaranteed to make you grin" - Amy Nicholson, New York Times

"Matilda the Musical" serves as a textbook example of how to adapt a stage production adapted from a book to the screen without sacrificing the spirit of its author." -Robert Levin, Newsweek
