Kung Fu Panda 3 And Dad’s Army

Kung Fu Panda 3

The Screen Machine is coming back to Tarbert on the 12 April 2016!
When Po’s long-lost panda father suddenly reappears, the reunited duo travels to a secret panda paradise to meet scores of hilarious new panda characters.

But when the supernatural villain Kai begins to sweep across China defeating all the kung fu masters, Po must do the impossible-learn to train a village full of his fun-loving, clumsy brethren to become the ultimate band of Kung Fu Pandas.

Living large and loving life, Po (Jack Black) realizes that he has a lot to learn if he’s going to fulfill the next challenge from his beloved instructor (Dustin Hoffman).
After reuniting with his long-lost father (Bryan Cranston), Po must transition from student to teacher and train a group of fun-loving, clumsy pandas to become martial-arts fighters.
Together, the kung-fu brethren unite to take on the evil Kai (J.K. Simmons), a supernatural warrior who becomes stronger with each battle.

Check out some of the reviews online! If you loved the others in the series this one is said to be the best Kung Fu Panda film yet!


Also Showing is the new Dad’s Army film.

Dad’s Army is a 2016 British war comedy film, based on the BBC television sitcom Dad’s Army. Directed by Oliver Parker, set in 1944, after the events depicted in the television series.
The story sees Catherine Zeta-Jones play a glamorous journalist, who is sent to report on the Walmington-on-Sea Home Guard platoon.
This is all before MI5 discovers that there is a German spy, hiding in the fictional British town.

While looking on youtube for the trailers I found this great little film by Armin Grewe giving you a virtual tour of the Screen Machine when it visited Islay.

Inside Out + Ricki And The Flash

Back on the 27th October, The Screen Machine is showing Inside Out at 5:30PM
Inside out is a “U” Rated 101 minute Disney Pixar Film.

Pixar is at the peak of its powers with this joyous coming-of-age story which is all about … emotions.
This is a story which takes place in two places at the same time – in San Francisco, and inside the head of 11-year-old Riley.

Riley has just moved there with her parents, and the emotions inside her head – the HeadQuarters – Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear and Disgust – are trying to make sense of all the upheaval.
Joy is very much in charge of the delightful Riley’s emotions, but since the move, Sadness is trying to become more involved.
Together they are flung to the furthest recesses of Riley’s mind, and struggle to find their way back across an astonishing landscape.
A funny, dazzling, intriguing, delightful and unexpectedly beautiful animation, which matches up to Monsters Inc and Up!

At 8:30 PM The Screen Machine is showing Ricki And The Flash, a 12A rated film running for 101 minutes

Meryl Streep kicks ass as Ricki, the mother who ran away from her family to pursue rock stardom. But her career hasn’t brought the stadium filling superstardom she hoped for, and she’s working in a grocery store to supplement her income singing covers in bars with her backing band,

The Flash. Ex-husband Pete (Kevin Kline) calls to burst Ricki’s bubble – their daughter Julie (played by Mamie Gummer – Streep’s real-life daughter) has been dumped by her husband and could do with her Mum returning home to reconnect with the family she has long since left behind.

It’s emotionally intense with great performance from the whole cast and some fantastic big musical moments.
