The beloved Paddington Bear (and his marmalade sandwiches) are coming to the big screen and there will be a special screening at the Avon.

There will be a special sneak preview of Paddington at the Avon Theatre Sunday, Jan. 11 at 10 a.m., pesented by the Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness. There will be hot cocoa and pastries available an hour before the show at 9 a.m.

In the film, 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.’

Tickets are $25 for adults and $20 for children. Tickets are not available through the Avon for this event. Order your tickets now at behomeful.org. Contact Katherine Kenney at [email protected] or 860-721-7876 ext. 101 for questions about ticketing.

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.  The organization plans to seize upon the generous spirit of the holiday season to help out the 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 behomeful.org for more information.
