Tokyo Godfathers (12)
Friday, December 9th 2016

Get into the Christmas spirit with New Dot Cinema’s December screening. Join us up in the balcony at Llangollen’s Town Hall for a moving and unusual take on the Christmas film.  It’s Christmas Eve and three homeless people, Gin, a middle-aged alcoholic, Miyuki, a teenage runaway and Hana, an ex-drag queen, have formed a makeshift family on the streets of Tokyo. While rummaging in dustbins for food they find an abandoned newborn baby. With only a handful of clues to the baby’s identity, the trio try to solve the mystery of the abandoned baby and returning her to her parents. Along the way, encounters with seemingly unrelated events and people force them to confront their own haunted pasts, as they learn to face their future, together.

We’ll be upstairs in the Town Hall again so take your seats in the balcony for this festive treat on Friday, December 9th. Doors open at 7.30pm, film starts at 8pm. Tickets: £8; £6 conc. Buy them from Baileys or online here.
