A host of brand-new animated adventures and all-time family favourites are landing at the venue, meaning there are plenty of opportunities to spend quality family time at the big screen during the school holidays.  
For the first time in almost a decade, the world’s most unlikely kung fu master, Po bounces back onto this big screen with a hilarious new chapter, in Kung Fu Panda 4 beginning today - 28 March.  
Facing his most fearsome foe yet in the many forms of the powerful sorceress The Chameleon, Po (voiced by the iconic Jack Black) must use his courageous Dragon Warrior martial arts skills to defend the Valley of Peace. 
However, he’s not alone, as he must team up with the crafty fox thief Zhen (voiced by Awkwafina) in this butt-kicking mission to ensure the world remains peaceful and at balance.  
Also being screened now and throughout the holiday is Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire.
Returning to New York City, the Spengler Family from Ghostbusters: Afterlife must unite with the original Ghostbusters to take on an evil force that threatens the world with a second Ice Age.  
With a cast that includes newer names such as Paul Rudd, Finn Wolfhard and original ‘busters Bill Murray and Dan Akyroyd, Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire looks to provide eerie thrills for the entire family.  
Sweeter than a spoonful of sugar, both Mary Poppins and its recent sequel Mary Poppins Returns are heading back to the big screen at Vue this Easter, marking 60 years since the release of the iconic first film.    
Making its debut on the big screen after exclusively releasing on streaming platforms, Disney’s recent adventure Luca will be playing at Vue from the 5 April. 
Set in a beautiful seaside town on the Italian Riviera, this animated adventure tells a coming-of-age story about one young boy’s unforgettable summer filled with gelato, scooters and his new best friend – who turns out to be a sea monster from a secret world below the ocean.  
Vue will also be bringing back some of the biggest family films from the past year, including the chocolatey charm of Wonka from 29 March and Disney’s Wish from 5 April as part of the Vue Mini Mornings series, shown every day across Half Term at 10am.  
Robert Lea, Head of Screen Content at Vue Entertainment, said "We’ve got a great selection of new films and big screen entertainment on show this Easter providing the perfect way to enjoy quality time with the family over the school break.  
"With film screenings from just £4.99 online at selected venues the big screen experience at Vue is the perfect treat during the Easter holidays.
"Even better, our Vue Mini Mornings at 10am, will continue to show the latest kids’ films at just £2.49 a ticket if purchased online and £3.49 in venue. Parents and children can come along, switch off and immerse themselves in great stories."
