The summer holidays are upon us and if you need a helping hand seeking out those essential family hits, that's where we come in. With the Cineworld Family ticket, adults pay kids’ prices in any group of 4 with a minimum of 2 children! So make the most of this summer with these epic family movies: 

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie

When it's out? Now

What's it rated? U

Who's it suitable for? All ages, particularly younger viewers

What's the pitch? When you fuse fart gags with a sweetly endearing story of one person who's convinced he's a superhero, the end result is Captain Underpants. Pitched as a sweetly inspirational comic book treat for the younger set, there's more than enough A-list vocal talent to keep adults entertained including Kevin Hart and Ed Helms.


The Emoji Movie

When's it out? 4th August

What's it rated? U

Who's it suitable for? Pretty much everyone – your kids use emojis all the time, right?

What's the pitch? Take those every day little symbols lurking within your phone or device, give them a CGI lick of paint and a smattering of A-list vocals and you'll get a summer family adventure that will have you :) from ear to ear. Plus, grown ups are likely to get a kick out of the fact that the prestigious Patrick Stewart is voicing Poop – yes, really.


The Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature

When's it out? 18th August

What's it rated? U

Who's it suitable for? Definitely the young 'uns, although older kids may well remember the first movie

What's the pitch? Which family can resist an animal-filled summer holiday extravaganza? This animation picks up after the 2014 original in which a group of park dwellers must band together to protect their home.


Spider-Man: Homecoming

When's it out? Now

What's it rated? 12A

Who's it suitable for? Older pre-teens (baddie the Vulture can get a bit intense)

What's the pitch? Like we need to remind you, this is Tom Holland's first solo Spidey movie and marks his official entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe alongside the likes of Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) It's enormously fun and breezy, taking Peter Parker back to high school (think Ferris Bueller does superheroes) with more than enough explosive action.


Despicable Me 3

When's it out? Now

What's it rated? U

Who's it suitable for? Anyone who finds the word 'bottom' funny

What's the pitch? The third serving of diabolical supervillain Gru (Steve Carell) and his ever-loyal Minions is the kind of wacky family treat that the summer holidays were made for. Just don't expect the whippersnappers to fully understand brilliant 80s-themed baddie Balthazar Bratt – that's one for the oldies.


Cars 3

When's it out? Now

What's it rated? U

Who's it suitable for? Anyone and everyone – after all, this is Pixar we're talking about

What's the pitch? Anyone who finds it hard to resist the likes of Lightning McQueen and the gang will be in automotive animated heaven. This time, Owen Wilson's plucky hero must get back into the racing game – will he make it? Well that would be telling...

And don't forget to make the most of our Family Ticket - adults pay kids’ prices in any group of 4 with a minimum of 2 children! Click here for details.
