Kids Camp: Paddington 2
All Kids Camp summer screenings are Pick Your Price – $1, $3, $5 – with 100% of ticket sales donated to these local non-profits: ATX Kids Club, Givens Swims by Forklift Danceworks, Kids in a New Groove, Saint Louise House, Ruby’s Rainbow and Special Olympics Texas.
Two years after the commercial and critical success of PADDINGTON, the sequel PADDINGTON 2 finds our humble and heroic Peruvian bear finding his groove alongside the Brown family that welcomed him into their home.
The second outing finds Paddington anxiously looking forward to his beloved Aunt Lucy’s upcoming 100th birthday, and setting out to find the perfect gift. He discovers it at Mr. Gruber’s antique shop – a very special and rare pop-up book. He takes on several odd jobs to earn the money to buy it, but before he can make the purchase, the book is stolen and Paddington himself is blamed for the crime. Paddington and his adoptive family, the Browns, must do their best to uncover the real culprit and clear his name.
PADDINGTON director Paul King and producer David Heyman (HARRY POTTER) return for the second installment, along with voice actor Ben Whishaw in the title role. He’s joined this time by an all-star supporting cast including Brendan Gleeson, Julie Walters, Hugh Grant, Jim Broadbent and Peter Capaldi. As with the original, the latest entry received nearly universal acclaim, embodying the spirit, passion, and compassion of creator Michael Bond’s immensely popular children’s book series.
