Crumlin Road Gaol to host Paddington 2, complete with marmalade sandwiches

Paddington Bear will be behind bars in Belfast on August 27

FORGET the porridge, it will be marmalade sandwiches all round as Paddington fans get the chance to watch the adventures of the little bear in Crumlin Road Gaol.

A special event has been organised by Into Film for the annual celebration of movies at Cinema Day 2018 on Bank Holiday Monday, August 27. The film education organisation chose Paddington 2 to tie in with this year's Cinema Day theme of ‘Home'.

“Paddington 2 is one of the most popular films on our Into Film Club catalogue so we felt it a perfect choice for families for Cinema Day, not to mention the link with the prison venue and a healthy supply of homemade marmalade sandwiches” said Into Film's Peter Murray.

Into Film is a UK-wide charity which aims to put film at the heart of children and young people's education.

The screening is free – including marmalade sandwiches; for tickets see For more information on Into Film see
