Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile, Whitney Houston: I Wanna Dance with Somebody, A Man Called Otto

Boxing Day and New Year’s Day are blockbuster times for local cinemas and the Newcastle Weekly has cinema passes to give away.

Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile – In cinemas Boxing Day

Based on the best-selling book series by Bernard Waber, Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile, starring Academy Award winner Javier Bardem, Constance Wu and Shawn Mendes, is a live-action/CGI family comedy adventure that brings this beloved character to a new, global audience.

When the Primm family (Constance Wu, Scoot McNairy, Winslow Fegley) moves to New York City, their young son Josh struggles to adapt to his new school and new friends. All of that changes when he discovers Lyle – a singing crocodile (Mendes) who loves baths, caviar and great music-living in the attic of his new home. The two become fast friends, but when Lyle’s existence is threatened by evil neighbour Mr. Grumps (Brett Gelman), the Primms must band together with Lyle’s charismatic owner, Hector P. Valenti (Bardem), to show the world that family can come from the most unexpected places and there’s nothing wrong with a big singing crocodile with an even bigger personality.

We have 10 passes to giveaway (each pass admits four).

Whitney Houston: I Wanna Dance with Somebody – In cinemas Boxing Day

Whitney Houston: I Wanna Dance with Somebody is a powerful and triumphant celebration of the incomparable Whitney Houston. Directed by Kasi Lemmons, written by Academy Award nominee Anthony McCarten, produced by legendary music executive Clive Davis and starring BAFTA Award winner Naomi Ackie, the film is a no-holds-barred portrait of the complex and multifaceted woman behind The Voice. From New Jersey choir girl to one of the best-selling and most awarded recording artists of all time, audiences are taken on an inspirational, poignant—and so emotional—journey through Houston’s trailblazing life and career, with show-stopping performances and a soundtrack of the icon’s most beloved hits as you’ve never heard them before.

We have 10 passes to giveaway (each pass admits two).

A Man Called Otto – In cinemas New Year’s Day

Based on the # 1 New York Times bestseller “A Man Called Ove,” A Man Called Otto tells the story of Otto Anderson (Tom Hanks), a grump who no longer sees purpose in his life following the loss of his wife. Otto is ready to end it all, but his plans are interrupted when a lively young family moves in next door, and he meets his match in quick-witted Marisol. She challenges him to see life differently, leading to an unlikely friendship that turns his world around. A heartwarming and funny story about love, loss, and life, A Man Called Otto shows that family can sometimes be found in the most unexpected places.

We have 10 passes to giveaway (each pass admits two).
