The High Street multiplex is certainly aiming to hit a slam dunk with the arrival of basketball and animation crossover Space Jam: A New Legacy.

For in the main foyer on Saturday and Sunday afternoon there will be a basketball hoop set up and, with every Kids Combo sold (popcorn, Haribo and Fruit Shoot), children can have a go getting a slam dunk.

In return there will be movie stickers for everyone who has a go and the future NBA stars will be entered into a prize draw to win the basketball stand, worth £60.

The Croods: A New Age

The film itself is a sequel to the 1996 hit Space Jam and stars NBA hero LeBron James as a fictionalised version of himself as he joins timeless cartoon Bugs Bunny in a bid to rescue his son.

The first is another animation feast provided by The Croods: A New Age, a follow-up to the 2013 original.

The Forever Purge

It tells the tale of prehistoric dad Grug trying to lead his family to a brighter future in increasingly turbulent times.
