Discovery Shorts - Family and Friends

Discovery Film Festival 2019

As we welcome audiences back into DCA, we thought it a perfect time to revisit some our favourite shorts from last year’s Discovery Film Festival – a chance to revisit old friends, and also as a taster for what is to come in Discovery 2020.

We’ve created two short film collections, each lasting about thirty minutes, screening at very special ticket prices. We hope you’ll be excited to come back into the world of big screen entertainment, and enjoy these wee variety packs of animated fun!

“enjoy these wee variety packs of animated fun… at very special ticket prices”

This is our second collection – Family & Friends! A wee mouse learns to fly (with a little help from his pals), a fox and a bird make unlikely allies and a robot overcomes his fear of water to help out some new friends on the beach…

Whether you saw some of them last year, or if this is your first time, don’t miss this chance to see these very special collections of the best of the fest.

We have a new seating plan that automatically allocates your seats to ensure social distancing while making the best possible use of our limited capacity. You don't need to do anything to make this happen: just select the number of tickets you need and they'll be automatically assigned. This should provide more flexibility when booking, but if you have any problems our box office team will be very happy to help, and can be reached on 01382 432 444.

If you are visiting the cinema with another household we kindly ask that you book separately so that social distancing can be maintained: alternatively, you can book two bubbles in a single booking by calling box office on 01382 432 444.

If you need to book one of our wheelchair seats please contact our box office team on 01382 432 444, or email
