The Greatest Showman

The Greatest Showman

Perhaps the ultimate family singalong film! At its height, The Greatest Showman's soundtrack was at the top of the album charts. The film is a bold and original musical that celebrates the birth of show business and the sense of wonder we feel when dreams come to life. We know this one's going to be popular (the last time we showed it there were queues out of the tent.) So, for a bit of nostalgia and a film that is universal in appeal, we thought what better way to start your day off on Sunday morning.

Back to the Future

Back to the Future

In 1985, Doc Brown invents time travel; in 1955, Marty McFly accidentally prevents his parents from meeting, putting his own existence at stake. This cult classic is a firm favourite amongst the Deer Shed team, so what better way than to sit relax and take you back to 1985 for your final night at Deer Shed.

Plus, we couldn't NOT show this film when our theme for 2024 is Retro Futures!

Wish

Wish

Asha, a sharp-witted idealist, makes a wish so powerful that it is answered by a cosmic force – a little ball of boundless energy called Star.

Together, Asha and Star confront a most formidable foe - the ruler of Rosas, King Magnifico - to save her community and prove that when the will of one courageous human connects with the magic of the stars, wondrous things can happen.

WALL-E

WALL-E

After hundreds of lonely years of doing what he was built for, Wall-E (short for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) discovers a new purpose in life (besides collecting knick-knacks) when he meets a sleek search robot named Eve. Eve comes to realize that Wall-E has inadvertently stumbled upon the key to the planet's future, and races back to space to report her findings to the humans (who have been eagerly awaiting word that it is safe to return home).

We love WALL-E!
