This event begins with a chocolate mice hunt in the hotel! Kids are encouraged to dress up as a witch (or a mouse) and there will craft activities. The Slieve Donard hotel is the perfect backdrop for this Roald Dahl’s classic film.

While staying at a hotel in England with his grandmother, Helga, young Luke inadvertently spies on a convention of witches. The Grand High Witch reveals a plan to turn all children into mice through a magical formula. When they find that Luke has overheard, the witches test the formula on him. Now, with the help of Helga and the hotel manager, Mr. Stringer, Luke the mouse must fight back against the witches.

This screening is organised by Newcastle Community Cinema, Strand Arts Centre and Northern Ireland Screen Digital Film Archive as part of BFI Britain on Film – Coast and Sea.
