Scratch and sniff cinema comes Home for Roald Dahl family film festival

A ‘scratch and sniff’ screening of Matilda is among the highlights as Home hosts a Roald Dahl on Film festival this August.

The art house cinema and theatre complex in Whitworth Street/First Street, Manchester, is presenting a series of films based on the Dahl books. It follows the release of the updated version of The BFG in July.

The season at Home starts on August 5 with James And The Giant Peach.

Scratch and sniff Matilda is screened from August 12, with every audience member given a card containing scents which synch with the scenes on the screen. Advance booking is recommended via the Matilda scratch and sniff website.

Then on Wednesday, August 17, Home is screening Gene Wilder’s classic version of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory.
