Cinema Vue Bolton is set to mark the 30th anniversary of classic children's film Wallace and Gromit: The Wrong Trousers with a double billing.

The Market Place Shopping Centre cinema will be showing the stop motion comedy duo's first two films A Grand Day Out and The Wrong Trousers to celebrate the landmark.

Released in 1993, The Wrong Trousers received critical acclaim, going on to become the first Wallace and Gromit film to receive an Academy Award.

It follows Wallace as he takes in a mysterious lodger, who starts to show a sinister interest in his "Techno-Trousers", much to the despair of loyal pooch Gromit.

To celebrate the Wensleydale-loving pair, both The Wrong Trousers and A Grand Day Out will be screening at Vue on November 11 and 12 as part of a special double feature.

The first film outing for Wallace and Gromit, A Grand Day Out, follows Wallace in quest for his favourite snack, as he takes Gromit on an out-of-this-world adventure in a home-made space rocket to discover if the moon really is made of cheese.

Since the release of The Wrong Trousers, Wallace and Gromit has spawned several films and TV series, with another feature film outing for the pair expected next year.

Until then, Wallace and Gromit can be enjoyed on the big screen at Vue Bolton, with tickets costing from £7.99 when bought online.

Adam Wren, general manager of Vue Bolton, said: ‘The iconic duo that are Wallace and Gromit have been entertaining both children and adults alike for generations.

"With fans eagerly anticipating the forthcoming film next year, we’re thrilled to be offering the chance to watch two classic Wallace and Gromit films on the big screen.

"Whether you’ve seen it once, or a dozen times, make sure you enjoy these films the way they should be seen – on the big screen."
