Ritz Cinema, Thirsk, from Fri 16 Aug

The Queen's Corgi (PG). After last weeks feast of African Animated Animals, a different set of furry friends, though since the hero is one of the Queen's corgis, no less wild for being a more domestic pet!  The corgi of the title is one of Her Majesty's favourites, and he escapes from the palace to end up in a dog fight club (or should that be dog 'bite' club!).  The action of his journey back to his life as a pampered palace pooch is voiced by a familiar galaxy of our screen stars - from Julie Walters as the Queen, through Sir Tom Coutenay, John Culshaw, Sarah Hadland (Miranda) Matt Lucas, Nina Wadia (Dinner Ladies) Jack Whitehall and Ray Winstone.

7.30pm daily & 2.30pm Sat & Sun. Price £6, £5 Monday, matinées & concessions.
