Norwich Theatre is hosting Sunday screenings, which are a chance to enjoy new film releases for free on the large screen at Norwich Theatre Stage Two.  

Starting on 19 May, all films share stories of compassion, humanity, and the impact of kindness. Films include Allelujah, Elemental, One Life and Migration. All movies are free to attend, but seats must be booked in advance. 

Sam Beal Creative Engagement Project Manager at Norwich Theatre, said: “Our free film screenings are a chance to get together and share a Sunday morning story. Whether you come with family, friends or on your own, everyone is welcome to enjoy a relaxing start to their Sunday with us. 

“When you think about kindness, we often think of grand gestures, but acts of kindness can be as simple as sharing and appreciating stories, and what better way to do that than four amazing films that have kindness at their core.” 

Sunday Screenings are part of Norwich Theatre’s Creative Matters: Kindness through Creativity season. The year-long season explores how creativity and the arts can inspire change, tell unheard stories, build compassion, and create a fairer and kinder society.  

TheKindness through Creativityseason will feature a series of shows, workshops, take-part activities, and talks, including sessions with Norfolk and Waveney Mind, May half term activities, and so much more. Later in the year, Norwich Theatre Royal will host Come From Away (15 – 26 Oct), a show about the incredible real-life story of the 7,000 air passengers who were grounded during the wake of 9/11 and the small Newfoundland community that invited these ‘come from aways’ into their lives.  

Allelujah (19 May) is a warm, humorous, and deeply moving story about surviving old age. When the geriatric ward in a small Yorkshire hospital is threatened with closure, the hospital decides to fight back. With an all-star cast including Jennifer Saunders, the film celebrates the spirit of the elderly patients whilst paying tribute to the deep humanity of the medical staff battling with limited resources and ever-growing demand. 

Disney and Pixar’s Elemental (2 Jun) is an animated romantic comedy about the unlikely pair, Ember and Wade, in a city where fire, water, land and air residents live together. The fiery young woman and the go-with-the-flow guy are about to discover something elemental: how much they actually have in common. 

One Life (16 Jun) is the true story of Sir Nicholas ‘Nicky’ Winton, a young London broker who, in the months leading up to World War II, rescued 669 predominantly Jewish children from the Nazis. 

Migration (30 Jun) is an animated film from Illumination. A family of ducks decides to leave the safety of a New England pond for an adventurous trip to Jamaica. However, their well-laid plans quickly go awry when they get lost and wind up in New York City. The experience soon inspires them to expand their horizons, open themselves up to new friends, and accomplish more than they ever thought possible. 

All films are free to attend, but seats must be booked in advance. For more information or to book, visit or call the Box Office on 01603 630 000.
