Free EXCLUSIVE Mumsnet screening of The Angry Birds Movie! In London and Manchester on May 8! - NOW CLOSED

We’re very excited to offer Mumsnetters the chance to attend an exclusive screening of the upcoming animated comedy, The Angry Birds Movie! The screenings will take place in London and Manchester on May 8, and are open to selected Mumsnetters with children aged 5+.

So, grab your flock and come and enjoy the animated adventure of Red, Chuck & Bomb!

You can watch the trailer here.

The Angry Birds Movie Synopsis:
In the 3D animated comedy, The Angry Birds Movie, we'll finally find out why the birds are so angry. The movie takes us to an island populated entirely by happy, flightless birds – or almost entirely. In this paradise, Red (Jason Sudeikis, We're the Millers, Horrible Bosses), a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck (Josh Gad in his first animated role since Frozen), and the volatile Bomb (Danny McBride, This Is the End, Eastbound and Down) have always been outsiders. But when the island is visited by mysterious green piggies, it’s up to these unlikely outcasts to figure out what the pigs are up to.

If that doesn’t egg-cite you, not only will you be one of the first people to watch the movie, there will also be some Angry Birds treats and a snack waiting for you!

Locations & Times:
ODEON Trafford Centre, Manchester – 10am (for 10.30am start)
Picturehouse Central, London - 10am (for 10.30am start)

Some important bits and bobs:

Latecomers will not be admitted and there will be no mobile phone/video camera/camera use permitted in the cinema.

You're welcome to bring your children to the event, with a max of 4 people (and 2 adults) per party (if you have more than three children, please email and we will try to find space for you). Please state the group size on the form - no changes to this can be made as we want to fill each cinema! You will need to make your own way to the cinema but there is parking available at the Trafford Centre, and Picturehouse Central, London is easily accessible by public transport.

Please note, as the film is rated U, Mumsnet would recommend bringing children aged 5+ to the screening.

After the screening it would be great to hear all your thoughts about the movie! Did it make you CHUCKle? Has your DC gone cuckoo for Angry Birds? Return to Mumsnet to add your reviews, post a photo or two of you and your DCs at the screening! We’d also love it if you could tweet your reviews using #AngryBirdsMN

Everyone who posts their feedback on the thread on Mumsnet will be entered into a prize draw. There will be 4 runner-up prizes and 1 lucky grand prize winner! The grand prize includes the following;
•A Sony HD Handycam
•£300 John Lewis voucher

Runner- up prize:
•1 x Angry Birds Goody Bag per runner-up winner

Daft question that is. Unless of course you are unlucky to not be anywhere near the cinemas involved.

LisaRinnasLips Fri 22-Apr-16 07:13:34

DS would love this!

dollylucy Fri 22-Apr-16 11:17:06

DS has been asking about this movie for 4 years!!!

MisForMumNotMaid Fri 22-Apr-16 16:50:42

I'm guessing that no one will object to DS1 wearing his ear defenders if we get picked?

It helps filter the crowd noise before and after the film and allows him to reduce the volume if its too loud.

He's an angry birds fan - we have quite a few of the real life sets so its a rare from virtual to reality thing in our house. (Its good rainy day fun if you haven't played the real life game.)

Fingers crossed :-)

rennie1811 Fri 22-Apr-16 18:59:56

Kriek Sun 24-Apr-16 11:02:02

I'm going to have to bow out of this. DH has informed me he has booked us a surprise weekend away over this date. Please remove my name from the possibles.

Good luck everyone. You will have a fab time I'm sure.
