The Hunger Games (12A) at Ely Drive-In Cinema
Katniss volunteers to replace her sister in a tournament that ends only when one participant remains. Pitted against contestants who have trained for this all their life, she has little to rely on.
As we make plans to re-open Ely Cinema, get your film fix with Babylon Arts and The Library Presents Drive-In Outdoor Cinema! Join us at Lancaster Way Business Park, Ely for a true cinematic experience, from the safety and comfort of your own car. Enjoy a movie day watching a film with all the family, not forgetting the obligitory cinema snacks.
The story takes place in a dystopian post-apocalyptic future in the nation of Panem, where a boy and a girl from each of the nation's 12 Districts are chosen annually as "tributes" and forced to compete in The Hunger Games, an elaborate televised fight to the death.
