Have your say

it may be summer – but chilly weather is on its way to Leeds Dock this weekend.

A snowman from the movie Frozen will visit the city centre waterfront development as it hosts a free interactive showing of the children’s favourite.

Today’s lunchtime screening is part of a weekend of film fun, which also includes a cult classic and a dinosaur-themed day tomorrow. (Aug 31)

Lucy Whalley, project co-ordinator for Leeds Dock owner Allied London, said: “This is a fantastic weekend of free pop-up cinema at Leeds Dock. We’re delighted to have secured such an exciting calendar and with the summer holidays drawing to a close, this is a great opportunity for families and film lovers to have some fun.”

Leeds-based Sneaky Experience is working in partnership with the development to show four films outside the Royal Armouries museum.

At 1pm today, young visitors will be delighted by the sing-a-long version of Frozen, as well as have the chance to meet characters including Princess Anna and Olaf.

Cult classic The Princess Bride, a fairytale with a difference, is on at 7pm.

On Sunday, August 31, there is a screening of The Land Before Time at 1pm, along with children’s activities including face painting and photo booth with dinosaur props. The fun will conclude at 7pm with the Yorkshire premiere of acclaimed documentary Dinosaur 13.

Guests are encouraged to bring their own chairs and blankets, while food and a licensed bar will be available=.
