There will be Escapes for Everyone this half term, with an array of family favourite content lined-up providing something for all tastes.

From Friday 28 May, film fans can watch the highly-anticipated origin story of one of Disney’s most iconic, infamous and beloved characters, Cruella de Vil. Set in 1970s punk rock London, filmgoers can escape to a journey that explores how a young, clever and creative girl named Estella transformed into the raucous, revenge-bent – and fashionable Cruella, following an encounter with the world’s leading fashion designer, Baroness von Hellman.

A star-studded and Academy Award laden line-up both on-screen and behind-the-scenes means this production promises to impress.

Academy Award winner Emma Stone masterfully plays the character responsible for Estella’s transformation into Cruella, alongside two-time Academy Award winner Emma Thompson, who plays the devastatingly chic and terrifyingly haute Baroness.

Produced by three-time Academy Award winner Marc Platt and supported by a talented team including Academy Award winning costume designer Jenny Beavan, Cruella delivers an unmissable spectacle shot across 44 locations in London and in studio, transforming iconic locations like Portobello Road, with costumes at the heart of the production.

But that’s not all, with even more family friendly films lined up on the roster.

Paul Robinson, General Manager at Vue Doncaster, said: “There are films for everyone to escape to over the half term.

“It’s incredibly exciting to continue bringing new, blockbuster content to the big screen with the arrival of Cruella and the Earwig and the Witch – but we’re just as happy to see the return of classics like Hook for families who want to get lost in these magical tales all over again, or introduce younger children to it for the first time.”
