Live from London’s West End this special performance brings multi award-winning Billy Elliot the Musical to cinemas for the first time.

Set in a northern mining town, against the background of the 1984/‘85 miners’ strike, Billy’s journey takes him out of the boxing ring and into a ballet class where he discovers a passion for dance that inspires his family and whole community and changes his life forever.
