Make it a movie night
It’s four years since the mischievous sheep last appeared on the big screen and now he’s back in a standalone sequel. When Shaun and the flock encounter a cute alien with extraordinary powers who has crash landed near their farm, they set about trying to get her home in order to prevent a terrifying alien invasion known as Farmageddon.
In cinemas across the UAE from Thu Oct 31.

Catch criminals
LEGOLAND Dubai has introduced a new 4D movie and heap of fun activities to its line-up as part of a special LEGO City Days event. Head to LEGO Studios 4D where little thrill-seekers and their parents become part of the action in the new LEGO City 4D-Officer in Pursuit movie, which follows LEGO City Police Officers as they try get their hands on a mischievous criminal. Once the film reaches its climatic ending (water, wind and bubbles included) a police report card is handed out to each of your officers in training, along with a set of instructions to give them clues as they set off on an adventure to track down hidden baddies who are lurking around the park. There is also heaps to discover at the newly-refurbished police headquarters in LEGO City, where fun-filled activities include police car build along with a test track where they can put their pedal to the metal and see how fast they can go. All that police work is tiring for law abiding personnel, so pop into The Café where little ones can pick up a free doughnut with every hot drink ordered for all their hard work in protecting the city. Take it up a level and if your child makes it official by dressing up as police officer then they can eat for free at Caesar’s Pizza & Pasta Buffet restaurant.
From Dhs235 (adults), free (kids under three). Fri Sept 27-Sat Sep 28 and Fri Oct 4-Sat Oct 5 www.legoland.ae
