 Another Ritz Exclusive – A Pre-Release screening of this Yorkshire based film

The Runaways Sun 13 Jan ONLY   Evening, No Matinee

The Runaways

112 mins

For one night only on Sunday 13th of January we will host Richard Heap (and hopefully some of the film’s stars) for a pre-release showing of his new film ‘The Runaways’, effectively a children’s adventure tale of three children and their donkeys as they flee Whitby and head across the moors heading for Leyburn. Naturally our wonderful county shines, but more than that it’s a heart-warming adolescent aimed adventure film.

Stars : Mark Addy, Tara Fitzgerald and Molly Windsor

For this Pre-release showing seats are available at £7.52 and £6.45 which are ONLY available online. If you wish to book tickets please CLICK HERE . Some tickets may be available on the night but this cannot be guaranteed.
