Children and adults alike can look forward to the tale of Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway.

And in June, Anthony Hopkins’ second and record-breaking Oscar-winning performance in The Father will be available on the big screen, in which Hopkins portrays a man’s battle to make sense of his circumstances whilst dealing with dementia.
Over the rest of the year and beyond, entertainment fans can look forward to a spectacular array of Hollywood blockbusters, with three years’ worth of new releases coming to the big screen within the next 18 months, such as No Time to Die, Top Gun: Maverick, Minions: The Rise of Gru and Fast & Furious 9.
An incredible selection of event cinema will also be available, completing a content line-up for all tastes. Football fans will be thrilled to know that both the Champions League and Europa League finals will be screening at select venues in partnership with BT sport, as well as the long-awaited documentary on football’s greatest ever manager, Alex Ferguson, in Sir Alex: Never Give In. The return of kids favourite Hey Duggee also means there are big screen events for everyone.
Barry Laird, general manager of Vue Inverness, said: “In a year marked by restrictions on our daily lives, the importance of escapism has never been stronger.
“After the best part of a year at home, we know that families in Inverness and entertainment fans are craving safe out-of-home experiences like never before – cinema provides that unique experience of being able to truly immerse yourself in a great story."
