Book cinema tickets for The Founder


A sharp and entertaining yarn from John Lee Hancock (Saving Mr. Banks) based on the true story of Ray Kroc (the superb Michael Keaton), a down-at-heel salesman from Illinois who in the 1950s happens upon a pair of brothers running a small Southern California burger chain. Their names - Dick and Mac McDonald.

Seizing upon the immense franchise potential of these fast food joints, Kroc's rise to full ownership of the vast McDonald's empire is thick with legal wrangling, brinkmanship and, above all else, sheer persistence - typifying the many conflicting sides of 'the American dream'.

Screening for carers and their babies on Mon 20 Feb at 11:15am.
Tickets £4.50 per adult. Screening is limited to babies under 12 months accompanied by no more than two adults. Baby-changing and buggy parking facilities are available.
