Paddington at The Loft Cinema
As part of Loft Jr., a free monthly series showcasing great new and classic family-friendly films from around the world, The Loft Cinema will present a screening of Paddington at 10 a.m., January 14. Pre-show activities hosted by Mildred & Dildred Toy Store will begin at 9:15 a.m. The event is presented by Trail Dust Town and sponsored by Bookmans Entertainment Exchange.
Based on the beloved children’s books by Michael Bond, Paddington follows the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear (voiced by Ben Whishaw) who travels to the city in search of a home. With his old hat, battered suitcase, duffle coat and deep love of marmalade, Paddington is definitely not the average bear. Finding himself lost and alone, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined—until he meets the kindly Brown family who read the label around his neck that says, “Please look after this bear. Thank you,” and offer him a temporary haven.
It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of a nasty museum taxidermist who has a dastardly plan in store for our tiny hero. Can Paddington escape her evil clutches and find happiness with his new family? A delightful, decidedly British, live-action family comedy, Paddington features an all-star cast including Nicole Kidman, Imelda Staunton, Michael Gambon, Sally Hawkins, Jim Broadbent, Julie Walters, Peter Capaldi and
