An orphan boy leads his quirky family of subterranean critters into battle with an evil villain in this fun-packed family animation. Eleven-year-old Eggs (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) has been raised in the underground lair of the Boxtrolls. These lovable creatures only come out at night to scour the streets of Cheesebridge for trash, which they turn into amazing inventions! Eggs has been with them so long that he now thinks he is a Boxtroll.

Their nemesis is the evil Archibald Snatcher (Ben Kingsley) – a pest exterminator with ideas above his station, who leads a sinister gang of Red Hats. Matters come to a head when Winnie (Elle Fanning), the neglected daughter of Cheesebridge’s wealthy mayor, teams up with Eggs to save the Boxtrolls. Adapted from Alan Snow’s novel ‘Here Be Monsters!’, this is a fabulous exquisitely animated new adventure from the creators of Coraline and ParaNorman.

Running time:   97 minutes.

Show Times:  Monday November 3rd at 10.45 am.

The Connaught Cinema and Studio are at 3 Union Place, Worthing.
