City centre cinema disappears Into The Woods
What was once a state-of-the-art cinema has been transformed into a woodland glen as if in a fairy tale.
Into The Woods (PG)
City Screen, Coney Street, York
From Fri Jan 9 at 5.45pm
£10 for adults
City Screen off Coney Street is bedecked with boughs of ivy and is home to a mysterious creature sipping a cup of beautifully decorated coffee.
Spookily the transformation has only occurred as the cinema prepares to show Into The Woods, Stephen Sondheim’s musical take on legendary fairy tales.
With Anna Kendrick as Cinderella, Jonny Depp as the wolf that preys on Little Red Riding Hood, and James Corden and Emily Blunt as the baker and his wife, it’s a movie with a magical cast.
– Dave Taylor, City Screen marketing manager
Keeping with the theme, the cinema’s café-bar has field mushroom soup and wild boar sausages with mustard mash and gravy, and Black Forest gateau on the menu.
Meanwhile the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust has provided a woodland wildlife colouring competition for Saturday’s Kids’ Club.
And Dr Sketchy’s returns to The Basement of City Screen on Thursday, February 5 with a mix of eccentric characters to sketch based on Alice In Wonderland.
