Some of Disney’s best-loved films are to be shown on the big screen once again at cinemas across the UK over the next few months.
And it’s all to celebrate the important milestone of Walt Disney Studios’ 100th anniversary.
With a century of classic cinematic experiences under their belts, it’s fair to say that Walt Disney Studios has been “making dreams come true” for generations of people, and so to celebrate the centenary, Vue cinemas across the UK will be screening some of Disney’s most beloved films over the coming months.
The celebrations are kicking off this Friday with a screening of Disney’s first fully-animated film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs – which was released all the way back in 1937.
With 10 classics to be screened in total right through until October, with both old favourites and newer but equally-beloved gems on the lineup, some of the other films you can head to your nearest Vue to watch include Snow White, Cinderella, Bambi, Sleeping Beauty, Peter Pan, 101 Dalmations, and The Jungle Book.
You can also catch screenings of Toy Story, Frozen, and The Princess and the Frog too.
And if all of that wasn’t exciting enough as it is, Disney lovers who pre-book tickets to see one of the classic releases will also be entered into a prize draw to be in with a chance of winning pairs of tickets for Disney’s upcoming film, Wish.
Wish follows Asha, who is a sharp-witted idealist, as she makes a wish so powerful that it’s answered by a cosmic force.

“With enchanting prizes, and limited-edition collectable Disney postcards available for all fans, everyone can expect a little bit of magic, so head down to your local Vue and enjoy these timeless films the way they should be seen – on the big screen.”
The Disney 100th Anniversary Season is now showing at Vue cinemas all across Greater Manchester and the UK until 13 October.
One person wrote (and I don’t know why she’s directly targeting Gary Barlow here): “Wow, @GaryBarlow the price of the Take That tickets are totally out of reach for a lot of us this time round . Two tickets approx £490, that’s a food shop for 5 weeks . Enjoy the profits.”
Another person said: “You know what @takethat you don’t need to charge a bloody fortune for the tickets, you’ve got enough cash yourselves and not every artist does it. I went to see Paolo at the Hydro 3 times for the price of 1 ⫩ ticket Ripping off your fans! Tickets are 4 times the price of 2015.”
Someone else said: “Prices are crazy…first time in 30 years that I’m not even trying for tickets.”
Another person commented: “Prices are ridiculously expensive, I got through to buy tickets for Birmingham but refused to pay £70 to sit at the very back of the arena.”
General sale tickets for Take That’s newest date are available through Co-op Live from 9.30am on Friday 6 October, and you can grab them here.

Brickhouse Social is hosting a brand new Harry Potter-themed pub quiz
Everyone loves a good quiz and while we know there are some non-believers, we think it’s fair to say most people grew up loving Harry Potter. Put those two things together and what do you get? The perfect night out for a Potterphile.
No, we said ‘Potter-phile’.
Manc favourite hangout and popular student spot, Brickhouse Social, has just announced the launch of their new Harry Potter-themed pub quiz, the first of which is set to take place on 4 October.
And just like any good quiz team, any quiz worth its salt needs a good name. Let us introduce you to Brickhouse‘s first-ever ‘Quizitch’ night. Well played — five points to Gryffindor.
Playing host to a horde of fantasy trivia nerds (ourselves firmly included) across their three-storey venue, the quiz starts at 7pm and will put Potterheads to the test with several rounds of questions about the famous book and film series devised by their resident Harry Potter expert.
From Azkaban, muggle magic and the Forbidden Forest to Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, Quizitch is set to be a Potterhead’s dream.
Better still, although it might not quite be the Triwizard Cup, there is going to be a veritable Honeydukes Express’ worth of prizes on offer, including bar tabs, slices of pizza and more.
Last but not least, the best part about this place is that once you’re all quizzed out, you can always head upstairs for a drink on the terrace, shoot some pool on the first floor or dance the night away at the Kable Club down in the basement afterwards.
You can reserve a table by simply emailing [email protected] or you can always give the guys a ring on 0161 236 4899.
Now, we’ll warn you: spots are being snapped up quickly so get in touch ASAP if you want to take part and even if not, you can always try your luck in case someone drops out. Either way, this won’t be the last time you’ll see Brickhouse diving into the Wizarding World.
Lastly, if all else fails, it’s not like there aren’t a whole host of other great pub quizzes going on around Greater Manchester all week long.
