The cinema has partnered with the Charity to provide a group of local residents and films fans with the opportunity to enjoy a complimentary screening of the family animation, in the cinema’s 94 seat auditorium, complete with a fully digital screen and a range of premier seats.

Inspired by the popular children’s book, Cloudy with a side of Meatballs 2 is an animated sequel about Flint Lockwood who now works at The Live Corp Company for his idol Chester V. But he's forced to leave his post when he learns that his most infamous machine is still operational and is churning out menacing food-animal hybrids.

Ahead of the screening, guests will be greeted with a brief introduction from ODEON Dorchester’s General Manager and the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance in the large cafe-bar area which overlooks the Brewery Square water fountains before being shown to their seats.

Guests will be encouraged to make donations via collection buckets circulated by the charity’s volunteers.

Tina Viksna, Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance Fundraising Manager said, “We were thrilled when ODEON came to us offering this opportunity. We are really looking forward the premiere screening and would like to say thank everyone who makes a donation in advance.”

Alan Escott, General Manager at ODEON Dorchester, added: “We are so pleased to be able to host this event for the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance. We know it’s a charity which is close to people’s hearts and we wanted to recognise their commendable services with a fun evening.

“The screening is completely free and we hope guests enjoy the exclusive premiere in the knowledge they are also supporting a fantastic local charity.”
