'How to Train Your Dragon' (PG) is showing at the Discovery Theatre from Friday, June 13.

Showing from Friday, June 13, at the Discovery Theatre is the film How to Train Your Dragon (PG) with matinees on Saturday and Sunday (there is no Saturday evening showing).

Starring Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Kristen Wiig, Ashley Jensen, and David Tennant, the story centres around a Viking teenager named Hiccup, who lives on the island of Berk, where fighting dragons is a way of life.

The teen’s smarts and offbeat sense of humour don’t sit too well with his tribe or its chief...who just happens to be Hiccup’s father. However, when Hiccup is included in Dragon Training with the other Viking teens, he sees his chance to prove he has what it takes to be a fighter. But when he encounters (and ultimately befriends) an injured dragon, his world is flipped upside down, and what started out as Hiccup’s one shot to prove himself turns into an opportunity to set a new course for the future of the entire tribe.

Also, showing from Monday at the Discovery Theatre is the film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (12A), which stars Chris Pine, Kevin Costner, Keira Knightley, Kenneth Branagh, Colm Feore, and David Paymer.

Jack Ryan segues from the Marine Corps to a position as a financial consultant for a Russian billionaire, where he’s framed in a terrorist plot and forced to go on the run.

Doors open at 7pm and the film will begin at 7.30pm. The doors will close at 7.35pm. For the matinee, doors open at 2pm and the film begins at 2.30pm. The doors will close at 2.35pm.

A minimum audience of four is required to show the film except on the last day of the performance or if your ticket is pre-booked.
