Beneath the city of Cheesebridge you wouldn't believe the magical cavournous home the trash collecting BoxTrolls have built. It's there, amidst their community of quirky, mischievous creatures that Eggs is lovingly raised after losing his parents.
Eggs safe world is threatened when the town's evil exterminator, Archibald Snatcher, comes up with a plot to get rid of the BoxTrolls. To protect his family, Eggs decides to venture above ground and "into the light," where he meets and teams up with fabulously feisty Winnie. Together, they devise a daring plan to save The BoxTrolls family.

Our Sunday morning Hyde & Seek screenings in Screen Two are relaxed. These screenings are intended to provide a safe environment for neurodiverse audiences, but everyone is welcome to attend. They feature prompt start times, raised lighting, reduced volume and a relaxed attitude to noise/moving around. To give audiences extra space, we reduce the capacity at these screenings, so pre-booking is advised as they often sell out.
“I can't remember the last time I saw a family animation so visually rich, tightly scripted and charmingly performed which was also built on a sound and progressive message.”Hitfix
“The Boxtrolls charms, in every way it can – with its gorgeous animation style that combines lo-fi with high-tech (the puppets were printed using 3D printers), with the huggable nature of the characters, and with the boldness of its storytelling and thematic concerns.”The Playlist
“It's gloriously inventive, wonderfully funny, and gorgeous to look at, the screen filled with sometimes overwhelming detail.”RogerEbert.com
