Labyrinth screening at Central Library

Labyrinth screening at Central Library

Head over to Central Library this April, where a special one-off screening of Jim Henson’s 1986 film ‘Labyrinth’ is being held as part of the new Cultural Hubs – Arts in Libraries programme.

Babysitting her infant brother Toby on a weekend night isn’t young Sarah’s (Jennifer Connelly) idea of fun. Frustrated by his crying she secretly imagines the goblins from her favourite book, Labyrinth, carrying Toby away.

When her fantasy comes true, a distraught Sarah must enter a maze of illusion to bring Toby back from a kingdom inhabited by mystical creatures and governed by the wicked Goblin King, played by the late David Bowie.

Labyrinth is brought to Central Library by A Small Cinema and the library’s Reading Hack group on Wednesday 6 April, 4pm.

The film is suitable for children aged four and above, and is a fantastic family event. Tickets cost £3, £2 (concessions), or £5 (group of four).

Book online at or call into any St Helens library to purchase your tickets.

Cultural Hubs is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and allows St Helens Council to enliven the borough’s network of 13 libraries with performances, plays, gigs, workshops, courses, events and exhibitions.

This fifth programme sees the team again working with local people to choose what they want to see in the borough’s libraries as well as a focus on working with local artists to exhibit their work.
