FILM The Lion King

The BIG Screen Cinema Experience

Saturday 05 December 2020

Congress Theatre

This larger than life Walt Disney live action film, adapted from the original 1994 version, full of jungle jeopardy and Oscar-winning songs (including Circle of Life by Elton John), stampedes into the Congress Cinema this December.

The Lion King tells the emotional tale of a pride of Lions ruling the African savanna with lion cub Simba who’ just can’t wait to be king’! Unexpectedly exiled from the pride by his evil uncle Scar, Simba forms an unlikely yet fantastic  friendship with meerkat Timon and Warthog Pumbaa and together they take on the seemingly impossible to restore the natural order of things among the animals and more importantly, love.
