Once upon a time, in a far away swamp, there lived an ogre named Shrek… and animated cinema history was born. Packed with irreverence that turned the fairy tale genre on its head, this Dreamworks classic has a bevy of winning performances from the likes of Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, and the inimitable Eddie Murphy, a banging soundtrack – Smash Mouth’s ‘All Star’ and the cover of ‘I'm a Believer’ are iconic – and a simple, but heartfelt message on the importance of companionship. Add in the ambitious CG stylisation and a consistent hit rate of gags, and it’s little wonder why Shrek still holds up two decades after we were first introduced to his swamp.
For more fun, join us in the cinema restaurant an hour before each family screening for arts and crafts.
Beautifully written, gloriously animated and tastily subversive
