From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, the all-new grand live-action adventure 'Dumbo' expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight. Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.
We’re delighted to offer Autism Friendly screenings at Buxton Cinema.
To make the experience more comfortable the house lights will be left up a little and volume will be lowered.
We will set up a chill-out area in the foyer. This area will be screened off slightly to separate it from the rest of the foyer and this will be accessed through a different door from the auditorium. Thanks to the Friends of Buxton Opera House we have purchased a sensory tent and light which will be set up in the chill-out area along with beanbags, foam mat, table, books and colouring sheets.
To help you prepare for your visit we have produced a visual story that you can download from the website.
