Will Ferrell is at his wide-eyed best in this disarmingly funny and good-natured festive family frolic. Buddy (Ferrell) is an adult human who has been raised by elves at the North Pole after stowing away in Santa's sack as an infant during his Christmas visit to an orphanage. Having finally realised that he is not like the other elves, he sets off to New York City to find his birth father - and finds things to be rather different there...

The Parrs are back, and this time around Helen (aka Elastigirl) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (Mr. Incredible) at home with Violet and Dash, navigating the day-to-day heroics of "normal" life. It's a tough transition for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack's emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone must find a way to work together again – which is easier said than done...

Group Discounts

Primary screening at Filmhouse


We recognise that many teachers are finding it increasingly difficult to bring groups to see films during class time, so to address this we offer 25% off tickets to public screenings at Belmont when bringing a group of ten or more pupils.

This discount applies to concession price tickets for pupils and full  price tickets for accompanying adults – details of our ticket prices for public screenings can be found here. Tickets should be booked through our box office on 01224 343 500

We hope that this discount will allow school groups to attend a range of  films at more suitable times. Please note that at public screenings we  expect all members of the audience to respect those around them, which  includes switching off mobile phones.
