Everton in the Community has joined forces with Cineworld Speke to host a special screening of The Angry Birds Movie 2, with all proceeds helping the Club’s official charity support more people in need across Merseyside.
Currently celebrating its one-year anniversary, Cineworld Speke has generously donated the use of one of its screens to Everton in the Community on Wednesday 7 August to host an extra-special screening for children and their families from 2pm where you can catch up on the exploits of Angry Birds Red, Chuck and Bomb as the flightless birds and scheming green piggies take their beef to the next level!
Tickets are priced at just £10 and include a plush toy for each child, courtesy of Club Partner Angry Birds. You can purchase tickets directly by clicking here.
When a new threat emerges that puts both Bird and Pig Island in danger, Red, Chuck, Bomb, and Mighty Eagle recruit Chuck's sister Silver and team up with pigs Leonard, his assistant Courtney, and techpig Garry to forge an unsteady truce and form an unlikely superteam to save their homes.
And ahead of the 2pm screening, there will also be plenty of fun for all of the family to enjoy with Cineworld and Everton in the Community staff hosting face painting and a bake sale, charity raffles, competitions and giveaways as well as the opportunity to have a photograph with former Blues player and Club Ambassador Ian Snodin.
And in addition to Cineworld Speke donating all proceeds from ticket sales to Everton in the Community, the leading cinema giant has also pledged to match any contributions made based on the number of tickets sold by the charity.
Located at the New Mersey Shopping Centre, the cinema houses 11 state of the art screens including an impressive Superscreen and 270-degree immersive viewing experience ScreenX. Cineworld Speke has shown over 300 films over the past year, playing the biggest blockbusters and delivering thousands of hours of movie magic for local residents.
Carena Duffy, Everton in the Community Fundraising Manager, said: “We are very grateful to Cineworld Speke for giving us the opportunity to host a charity screening and the new Angry Birds Movie 2 is the perfect film for children and their families to enjoy together during the school holidays whilst supporting Everton in the Community.”
Andrew Starkie, Cineworld Speke General Manager, said: “It’s been an incredible first year and we’ve loved being part of the local community, welcoming over half a million customers through our doors since we opened. We are delighted to share our anniversary celebrations with a charity screening with Everton in the Community and along with a wealth of other activities taking place in the cinema, we’ll be sure to get everyone into the party spirit.”
Established in 1988, Everton in the Community delivers over 40 social programmes across Merseyside each year tackling issues such as unemployment, mental health, poverty, youth engagement, disability and dementia. The charity’s ground-breaking and innovative work supports vulnerable and underprivileged people of all ages, backgrounds and cultures.
