Visitors to Manchester’s Printworks this weekend celebrated the launch of Space Jam: A New Legacy with Manchester Giants players like Jack Hudson, Jordan Whelan and new signing Jamell Anderson.

Avid moviegoers were able to channel the spirit of the game before catching the latest blockbuster with the UK professional basketball team.

In addition to the ball games with visitors next to the Space Jam mural by Printworks and Warner Bros, designed by street artist Captain Kris, players on the world-class basketball team were able to show what the original Space Jam meant to them when he first met Michael Jordan, and how it can inspire teens to pick up the game and make their own legend.

Jason Shay, Center Director, commented, “Space Jam was such an iconic movie that it only makes sense to celebrate its latest release with a top tier basketball team in Manchester on hand to answer game-related questions.

This is just one of the many summer activities we offer for families at Printworks, with many offers at Tenpin, Escape Reality, Treetop Adventure Golf and Vue. “

Just in time for the launch of Space Jam: A New Legacy, the world of Looney Tunes was unleashed in Printworks and in Manchester city center, with two unique works of art installed right on the venue.

11 classic characters including Bugs Bunny, Lola Bunny, Daffy Duck and Tasmanian Devil were installed by street artist Captain Kris along with a final mural featuring basketball legend LeBron James from Printworks’ Walkabout.

The trail passes through 12 different locations in Manchester city center including Printworks, Market Street, Spinningfields and Canal Street – have fun chasing the rest!

The mischievous work of art, which appeals to families as well as adults who want to relive the original film nostalgia, shows Daffy Duck waiting for a tram in Exchange Square, Speedy Gonzalez sprinting through Spinningfields, Bugs Bunny from Primark bursting, Porky Pig at Pen a whistle pops and Pencil, Wile E. Coyote chasing Road Runner through Symphony Park, and the Looney Tunes gang skateboarding through Deansgate Square.

QR codes are hidden in each character artwork and show a virtual map so you can find the other locations.

You’ll also have the chance to check out the other Looney Tunes novelties, including the Space Jam: A New Legacy trailer, starring basketball star LeBron James.

Space Jam: A New Legacy is now showing on Vue Printworks and you can book your tickets online for as little as £ 4.99.

The trail will be visible until the end of July, while the mural will remain throughout the summer.
