The story of Great Thunberg, as never seen before, will be shown at Vue Edinburgh Omni and Ocean Terminal on October 18.

The documentary by Swedish director, Nathan Grossman, follows Greta’s rise to fame using exclusive footage. The Vue cinema chain has even managed to bag an exclusive Q&A with the climate warrior herself.

The 3pm special screening will show how the shy schoolgirl catalysed a global movement, with schools around the world following in Greta’s footsteps to strike and take action in the fight against climate change.

It concludes with the activist’s wind-powered journey across the Atlantic Ocean to speak at the UN Climate Action Summit in New York City.

General Manager at Vue Edinburgh Omni, Robert Smith, said: “It’s great to be able to bring content such as this to the big screen at both Vue Edinburgh Omni and Ocean Terminal.

“Greta has become a household name for many in recent years, although the full details of her rise to prominence may not being so familiar to us all. This documentary provides a great insight into how this young girl has managed to have such a global impact.
