DHX Brands has teamed up with Vue Entertainment in the UK for a special Teletubbies singalong screening, called Teletubbies Songtime at the Cinema.
From June 7th this year, families and young Teletubbies fans will be able to chime along to the popular cast of characters in a 60 minute show that brings five favourite episodes of the hit CBeebies series to the big screen for the first time.
All 90 of Vue’s venues across the UK and Ireland will be screening the special, thanks to its exclusive deal with DHX Media, with episodes including Tickly, Big Dance, Music, Conga and Party. There will be words on screen, meaning even parents can join in with singing classics such as Old MacDonald and If You’re Happy and You Know It, as well as the Teletubbies original, Big Hugs.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for Teletubbies fans to sing and dance in the aisles while enjoying an hour of fantastic family fun to kick off the summer,” said Laura Brennan, brand manager, DHX Brands. “Vue’s big screens provide the perfect setting for a loud, lively and larger-than-life Teletubbies experience.”
Johnny Carr, event cinema manager, Vue Entertainment, added: “We’re delighted to be bringing the Teletubbies to our venues this spring. This one-hour show is the perfect introduction to the magic of the big-screen experience for pre-school children and we look forward to welcoming families to enjoy it.”
Teletubbies changed the face of children’s TV when it originally aired in the ’90s, and its 2015 refresh for 21st century preschoolers is proving equally popular. Teletubbies is available in over 200 territories across linear and VOD TV and attracts approximately 100 million views per month on its global YouTube channels.
