Shaun The Sheep is in for his first cinematic adventure.


There is a hint of local flavour to the Curzon’s listings this week, with Clevedon-shot The Fold (15) being screened on Sunday at 5pm.

The Fold, made by Bristol-based filmmakers Daffodil Productions, is set in Cornwall but used locations in and around Clevedon for scenes, with staff at Clevedon Medical Centre used as extras.

Family favourite, Shaun the Sheep (PG), will also be hitting the screen this weekend, getting its first showing on Friday at 6pm, with further screenings throughout the week.

The loveable sheep’s first foray into film sees him on a mission to save The Farmer who gets inadvertently taken away to the city.

Also getting a first screening on Friday is Clint Eastwood’s latest action-packed offering, American Sniper (15).

American Sniper stars Bradley Cooper as Chris Kyle, who earns the title of Legend due to saving countless lives on the battlefields of Iraq, but on returning home from four tours of duty he finds it is a war he can’t leave behind.

The Curzon has seen ticket sales soar over the past few weeks as the cinema has shown films including the Theory of Everything, The Imitation Game and Paddington, selling as many as 600 tickets daily. With Fifty Shades of Grey due for release on Valentine’s Day, there could well be more busy days ahead for the famous cinema.
