With the heat hitting as high as 40°C this weekend, nothing is better than catching a movie with the fam at the cinema (who would say no to AC?). Are you kiddies big fans of the Angry Birds games? If they click on the Angry Birds app everytime you pass them the iPad, then they will sure enjoy the long-awaited The Angry Bird Movie – you will be taken to an island populated entirely by happy, flightless birds, or almost entirely. In this paradise, Red, a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck, and the volatile Bomb have always been outsiders. But when the island is visited by mysterious green piggies, it’s up to these unlikely outcasts to figure out what the pigs are up to.
When: From Thursday, 12 May
Where: Cinemas around town!
