Gromit's Movie Marvels
Please note: this season finished in Sept 2013
This summer it's dogs-a-go-go at Watershed. We couldn't let Gromit Unleashed, a trail of 80 five foot tall Gromit sculptures unleashed onto Bristol and beyond, go by without hosting a month long season of films featuring man's best friend.
Gromit has taken a little break from looking after that cheese-loving inventor Wallace, to choose his favourite films, featuring the best cinematic canines out there. From scrappy Jack Russell terriers, to bumbling Labradors, spotty Dalmatians and loyal Collies, there's something here for all the family. Gromit himself will be making an appearance from Mon 19 - Thu 22 Aug at 13:30 in his debut feature film Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit and kicking off the whole season on Thu 1 Aug at 13:30 when he appears in Oscar®-winning short The Wrong Trousers.
Plus every Friday afternoon throughout August kids aged 6-11 can book a place on one of our dog-themed stop motion animation summer school workshops.
Workshop Tickets: See the Friday film at 13:30 and attend the workshop for £5.00 or go to all five films and workshops for £20.00. To buy tickets for the workshop or the package deal please call Box Office on 0117 927 5100.
Film Tickets: Adults £5.50 full / £4.00 concessions. Children under 12: £2.50. Special ticket offer: see four films, get the fifth free. Please call Box Office on 0117 927 5100 to book the ticket offer!
