Director Garth Davis brings dramatic heft and shimmering visuals to this saga of five-year-old Saroo (the beguiling Sunny Pawar), who is accidentally stranded in Kolkata, 950 miles from his home in Madhya Pradesh. Afraid and disoriented, he faces overwhelming challenges, but is eventually adopted by an Australian couple (Nicole Kidman and David Wenham) who lovingly parent him in their native Tasmania. While on a hotel management course 25 years later, the grown-up Saroo (Patel) meets and falls in love with Lucy (Mara), who then helps him to search for the mother he still yearns for back in India.

Based on a true story, this is an arresting, emotionally charged tale that receieved a substantial six Oscar nominations including Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor nomainations for Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman.


BYOBaby screenings are a chance for the parents and carers of babies up to 12 months old, to get to the cinema without leaving the little one at home. With raised lighting levels, reduced volume and baby changing/bottle warming facilities, we aim to make these screenings as comfortable for you as possible.

Tickets are £5.50, which includes a free tea or coffee. If you want to come down early and catch up with friends, doors open at 10.30am and the film starts around 11.15am.

Due to limited space, we advise people to bring babies in slings or car-seats where possible. Numbers are limited for BYOB showings, so it is advisable to book in advance, particularly for the more well known films.
