Enjoy a classic film screening in the Hippodrome’s beautifully-restored Edwardian auditorium… This film adaptation of a Roald Dahl work tells the story of Matilda Wormwood (Mara Wilson), a gifted girl forced to put up with a crude, distant father (Danny DeVito) and mother (Rhea Perlman). Worse, Agatha Trunchbull (Pam Ferris), the evil principal at Matilda’s school, is a terrifyingly strict bully. However, when Matilda realises she has the power of telekinesis, she begins to defend her friends from Trunchbull’s wrath and fight back against her unkind parents. – Groups of seats are 2+ metres apart in line with government guidelines on social distancing. – Groups of seats should only be occupied by members of the same household.
