Director Stephen Daldry
Starring Jamie Bell, Julie Walters, Jean Heywood, Gary Lewis

Join us for a very special 20th anniversary screening of BAFTA-winning dance drama Billy Elliot.

First released in 2000, Billy Elliot is a heart-warming tale of an eleven-year-old coal miner's son (Jamie Bell) growing up during the miners’ strike in the North of England, whose life is forever changed when he stumbles upon Mrs Wilkinson's (Julie Walters) ballet class during his weekly boxing lesson. Before long, he finds himself immersed in ballet, demonstrating a raw talent and becoming torn between his unexpected love of dance and the disintegration of his family.

Written by Lee Hall and the first film of noted theatre director Stephen Daldry, Billy Elliot garnered three Oscar® nominations (including Best Director) and thirteen BAFTA nominations, winning three – including Best British Film.
