Paddington 2 charity screening2 November 2017
Paddington 2, featuring the friendly bear from deepest, darkest Peru, is back in cinemas in time for summer holidays. But you don’t have to wait for the official release date.
Our partners Event Cinemas are running exclusive charity advance screenings across Australia to raise money for children’s hospitals, including Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick.
Paddington, now happily settled with the Brown family and a popular member of the local community, picks up a series of odd jobs to buy the perfect present for his Aunt Lucy's 100th birthday, only for the gift to be stolen. With an all-star cast, including new addition Hugh Grant, this is a fabulous way to spend a Sunday morning.
Gather the kids and head to your nearest charity screening on Sunday 3 December at these Event or Greater Union Sydney cinemas Beverly Hills, Bondi Junction, Burwood, Campbelltown, Castle Hill, Cronulla, George St, Hornsby, Hurstville, Liverpool, Macquarie, Miranda, Paramatta, Top Ryde City, Shellharbour and more across Australia. We kick off at 10:30am with foyer activities, be in your seats for 11am so you don’t miss a moment of the film.
Since 2011, Event Hospitality & Entertainment have donated over $250,000 to the Sydney Children’s Hospital Foundation. The team support our work through a variety of fundraising activities, the highlight of which is the annual Charity Screening each December. Over the years EVENT has funded some fabulous projects, including a Chill Out room in the new Trapeze Adolescent Ward in the Bright Alliance Building. Having just signed a further three-year partnership deal, we are grateful for the remarkable support we receive from EVENT.
