Movie gold for Easter with this favourite

On Easter Monday (March 28), 400 cinemas nationwide will screen The Railway Children, a film of York Theatre Royal’s Olivier Award-winning production performed in summer 2015 at the National Railway Museum, Yorkshire.

The film captures Mike Kenny and Damian Cruden’s imaginative stage adaptation of E. Nesbit’s cherished novel on its return to its Yorkshire roots, and features the locomotive from the much-loved original 1970 film.

The Railway Children follows the story of Roberta (Bobbie), Peter and Phyllis, three sheltered siblings who suffer a huge upheaval when their father, who works for the Foreign Office, is taken away from their London home and (falsely) imprisoned.

Kino Rye is showing the film locally but for details of all participating cinemas, visit www.railwaychildrenfilm.com.
