As a puppy, Bella finds her way into the arms of Lucas, a young man who gives her a good home and whom she comes to adore. When Bella becomes separated from Lucas, she soon finds herself on an epic 400-mile journey to reunite with her beloved owner. Along the way, the lost but spirited dog touches the lives of an orphaned mountain lion, a down-on-his-luck veteran and some friendly strangers who happen to cross her path.

“This family-friendly adventure follows a tried-and-true but heartwarming path.” - Variety.

“A DOG’S WAY HOME manages to serve up a one-to-two - hankie finale, depending on the extent of your dog-person-ness.” - New York Times.

“With her sweet face, alert eyes, and a tail that forever waves in the air like a maestro’s baton, this is a dog worth following, no matter the breed.” - Observer.

Rated PG for thematic elements, some peril and language, 96 mins.

CINEMA SERIES - They Shall Not Grow Old

Mar 30 2019 - 7:30pm They Shall Not Grow OldThey Shall Not Grow Old

On the centenary of the end of First World War, Academy Award-winner Peter Jackson presents an extraordinary new work showing the Great War as you have never seen it. Digitally remastered and now in color, the hundred year old footage has been studied by lip reading experts whose transcripts were recorded and used as audio for the film. Overlayed by a narrative of those who partook in the war from interviews made in the 1960s and 1970s, this historic revisiting aims to give these men voices, investigate the hopes and fears of the veterans, the humility and humanity that represented a generation changed forever by a global war.

“Technology has allowed Jackson to erase the barriers of time and speak to a new generation about what war does to youth. His humane and heartbreaking film is a profound achievement.” - Rolling Stone.

Unrated, 99 mins.
