The accident-prone bear arrives from Peru at Paddington Station, needing a home and marmalade sandwiches. The Brown family duly oblige and their lives are never the same.
Paddington himself is beautifully realised by computer technology, and voiced by Ben Wishaw. This film was a huge, joyous hit and a sequel was made almost instantly. This film features a brief cameo by the bear’s writer and creator, Michael Bond, who sadly died in 2017 in London and is buried, appropriately, in Paddington Cemetery.
This screening will (as always) be introduced by Barry Purves with informed trivia, anecdotes and some background of the production.
The bar will be open before and after the show.
Come and join us in a friendly, informal and Covid-19 safe atmosphere, to take advantage of sensational screening facilities as well as our low prices and free car park.
