THE WORLD’S END starring Simon Pegg & Nick Frost – Starts Friday!

The World’s End (15 – ID required if you look under 18, parental consent not valid ID)

They’ve given us Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Paul… and now, from Director Edgar Wright, they give us The World’s End. Starts Friday here at the Plaza and you’ll be able to book from tomorrow (Monday).

Synopsis: 20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hellbent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by Gary King (Simon Pegg), a 40-year-old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their hometown and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub – The World’s End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realise the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.
