Showcase Cinemas and MAYA THE BEE host Charity Event Screenings ahead of October release

16 October 2015

The charity screenings will be hosted by Showcase Cinemas across the UK on Sunday 18th October at 10.30am, ahead of the film’s UK general release on 23rd October raising funds for the Friends of the Honey Bee and supporting the valuable work undertaken by the British Beekeepers’ Association.

Jane Moseley, the General Secretary of the British Beekeepers' Association had the following to say "Maya the Bee is a delightful film which introduces the world of the honey bee in an entertaining way. Her adventures with her friends highlight the importance of honey bees and other insects and brings the real world of the honey bee to life. Kids will love the film and our partnership with distributor Primal Screen and Showcase Cinemas to organise local Charity Event Screenings will raise much needed funds for Friends of the Honey Bee which will enable us to deliver resources to support the next generation of beekeepers and to preserve bees for the future."




Tim Grohne, Managing Director of Primal Screen said “We are extremely grateful for the fantastic support given by Richard Leonard and the whole team at Showcase in helping to raise funds for vital research as well as raising awareness of the issues surrounding the honey bee in the UK"

Mark Barlow, General Manager UK Theatres, Showcase said “We are delighted to be hosting these special charity screenings at our cinemas across the country, and hope that through the screenings we can help raise both awareness and funds for such a worthwhile charity.”
