In times long ago, the world was filled with wonder and magic, adventure and sorcery. But times have changed. Now the world is a place where elves live in suburbs, manticors run fast-food restaurants and feral unicorns scavenge from dustbins. Ian Lightfoot is so excited for his 16th birthday but he wishes his dad was still alive to see the young man he's grown up to be. When his mom brings out a present left by his dad, a magic staff that will bring him back to life for 24hrs, Ian can hardly believe it. But when the spell goes wrong, Ian and his brother Barley embark on an epic adventure to find the magic that will bring their dad back before the 24hrs are up.

About Film Unit
Film Unit is the award winning independent cinema located in the Sheffield Students' Union. Founded in 1949, we are a group of cinema lovers who desire to provide entertainment, to be not for profit, and to promote film as an art form.
We screen a selection of films on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays during term time, with the cheapest ticket price in Yorkshire. We specially curate our programme with blockbusters, independent, foreign, family and classic cinema, to ensure we provide something for everyone. For us, cinema should be for everyone, so all our standard screenings are open to the public, our matinee screenings are Hard of Hearing friendly with subtitles and this semester we are hosting a special Autism-friendly screening of Lego Batman. We're hosting two very special free screenings of I, Daniel Blake in association with Unite the Union and on April Fools' Day, we're holding a hilarious Fools Festival of British Comedy Cinema. We are volunteer-run so if you'd like to get involved, please get in touch. www.filmunit.org.uk
Once again many thanks to all our staff, volunteers and of course, our audience!
