Animation caper Shaun the Sheep is coming to Ely Cinema, this weekend.

The film has been brought to the big screen after the success of the television series, which was created by Aardman Animations, the team behind the much-loved Wallace and Gromit films.

The film, rated U, is showing twice at the Maltings on Sunday, at 3pm and again at 7.30pm.

The story picks up the tale of Shaun, Bitzer and their flock as they journey into the big city to rescue the farmer, who gets lost after Shaun’s mischief.

Along the way, Shaun is captured by animal control, and finds himself in a cell with Bitzer. But, as they find out, imprisonment is just the beginning of their troubles.

With an enraged stray-catcher hot on their trail, Shaun’s plan to safely make it back home won’t be nearly as easy as he hoped, but he is determined to succeed.

Tickets for the film are available from £5.50 from the box office on 01353 616991.
