U.S. journalist Jeannette Walls released her best-selling memoirs The Glass Castle in 2005. They detailed her experiences growing up with three siblings and her eccentric parents - roaming from town to town, fleeing the debts incurred by her wilfully wild father (Woody Harrelson). Starring Brie Larson and Naomi Watts, Destin Daniel Cretton's film takes us on Walls' journey to adulthood from these freewheeling formative years - an upbringing that inspired her fierce determination to make a successful life on her own terms.

All screenings of The Glass Castle will have audio description, and the 20:35 screening on Sun 22 Oct will have onscreen captions.
Screening for carers and their babies on Mon 23 Oct at 11:00am.
Tickets cost £4.50/£3.50 concessions per adult. Screenings are limited to babies under 12 months accompanied by no more than two adults. Baby-changing, bottle-warming and buggy parking facilities are available.
