Synopsis: Elf (G) Buddy (Will Ferrell) was accidentally transported to the North Pole as a toddler and raised to adulthood among Santa’s elves. Unable to shake the feeling that he doesn’t fit in, the adult Buddy travels to New York, in full elf uniform, in search of his real father. As it happens, this is Walter Hobbs (James Caan), a cynical businessman. After a DNA test proves this, Walter reluctantly attempts to start a relationship with the childlike Buddy with increasingly chaotic results.
SENSORY SCREENING NOTE (Modified Lighting and Sound):
This film is a family friendly (sensory) screening. We are dedicated to providing events that are inclusive to all members of the community and the importance of events that we run to be accessible to all abilities. Originally created for individuals who identify with having a disability, who along with their family and friends can enjoy a positive and non-judgmental movie experience, the cinema lights are dimmed (not darkened) and the movie volume lowered for sensitive ears. Patrons are allowed to move seats and stand, whatever is the most comfortable for them. These events are a great opportunity for parents and carers of special needs individuals to enjoy a visit to the cinema with compassion and understanding. Screenings are also suitable for ‘Babes in Arms’. Great for parents or carers of babies who want to get out of the house, watch a movie and not feel worried about the distraction of crying or squirming. A gentle introduction to cinema too, for little ones who may feel daunted by the darkness of the auditorium.
Cast: Will Ferrell, James Caan, Bob Newhart
