High School Musical (Friday 3rd December at 17:00) Troy is best known as the player who keeps the East High basketball team on the scoreboard. Of course, life isn’t always about athletics, though, and as Troy slam dunks on the boards, beautiful and brainy Gabriella is raising the reputation of East High as the key member of the school’s successful academic team. Despite their outgoing natures, no one would ever peg Troy and Gabriella as theatre types. When word gets out that this popular pair has secretly chosen to reach for the stars and try their luck on the stage, the students of East High are about to learn an important lesson in teamwork while gearing up for a musical performance that will have their audience dancing in the aisles.

She wants her life back the way it was—her parents back together, her dad’s new girlfriend and son out of the picture, and their family traditions to remain the same. After a disappointing celebration with her family, including her sister Gabriela “Gabby,” Abuela Sofia and Abuelo Hector, she makes a wish to a neighbourhood Santa for a “do-over” and unexpectedly finds herself reliving Christmas day over and over … and over again. Now, in order to break the strange magical loop, Ro must learn to appreciate her loving family as it is, as well as the true meaning of Christmas.

Cheetah Girls (Friday, 31st December at 17:00) Four New York teens facing the challenges of growing up as they dance and sing their way toward that elusive record deal. As the girls are gearing up to rehearse for the school talent competition, they’re discovered by famous record producer Jackal Johnson.

Ultimately, the path to stardom challenges their friendship and the girls must find a way to come together in order to achieve their dreams.
