Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald
In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans of raising pure-blood wizards to rule over all non-magical beings, Albus Dumbledore enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided world.

We will be meeting at the Society at 5.00 pm before heading together to Odeon Great Northern cinema for the 6pm screening.
