Paddington has grown up deep in the Peruvian jungle with his Aunt Lucy who, inspired by   a chance encounter with an English explorer, has raised her nephew to dream of an exciting life in London. When an earthquake destroys their home, Aunt Lucy decides to smuggle her young nephew on board a boat bound for England, in search of a better life. Arriving alone at Paddington Station, Paddington soon finds that city life is not all he had imagined – until he meets the kindly Brown family, who find him with a label tied around his neck which reads ‘Please look after this bear. Thank you.’ They offer him a temporary home whilst he searches for the explorer who impressed Aunt Lucy all those years before.  Not Rated | In English | 95 minutes

About be homeful: This holiday season the Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness and Paddington Bear will join forces to launch be homeful, a very special campaign designed to help families on the brink of homelessness stay in the comfort of home. Well-known for the classic children's books, Paddington has himself experienced homelessness and is in a wonderful position to put a positive face on an issue that has been incredibly misunderstood and ignored. We plan to seize upon the generous spirit of the holiday season to help our nation's most vulnerable children. be homeful will offer families tools to talk about and raise funds to end family homelessness before it begins. Visit for more information.
