“The Boxtrolls” to Launch Belfast Junior Festival

Posted on 12th August 2014 | Cinemagic News

We are pleased to announce that the 2014 Cinemagic Junior Festival will be launched with a special preview screening of animated comedy adventure - The Boxtrolls (3D) at 6.30pm on Friday 5th September at Odeon Cinemas Belfast. Tickets on sale now!


The Boxtrolls is a comedic fable that unfolds in Cheesebridge, a posh Victorian-era town obsessed with wealth, class and the stinkiest of fine cheeses. Beneath its charming cobblestone streets dwell the Boxtrolls, foul monsters who crawl out of the sewers at night and steal what the townspeople hold most dear: their children and their cheeses. At least that’s the legend residents have always believed. In truth, the Boxtrolls are an underground cavern-dwelling community of quirky and lovable oddballs who wear recycled cardboard boxes the way turtles wear their shells. The Boxtrolls have raised an orphaned human boy, Eggs since infancy as one of their dumpster-diving and mechanical junk-collecting own. When the Boxtrolls are targeted by a villainous pest exterminator Archibald Snatcher who is bent on eradicating them as his ticket to Cheesebridge society, the kind-hearted band of tinkerers must turn to their adopted charge and an adventurous rich girl Winnie to bridge two worlds amidst the winds of change – and cheese.
