DO you know a hero? Would you like to get their 2015 off to the best possible start?
The Observer and Chichester Cineworld have joined forces to track down seven community heroes and their families to attend a special screening of the new Disney film Big Hero 6.
The screening will be at 10.30am on Sunday, January 25, five days ahead of the film’s big-screen release. The rest of the invite-only audience will be made up of members of the emergency services including police, fire brigade, paramedics and RNLI.
Chichester Cineworld operations director Luke Eggleston said: “We wanted to do something in the community. We haven’t really done anything like this before, and this is the perfect film.
“We are looking for people who have done outstanding work in the community, who have done selfless work, who are carers, who have looked after members of their family or others or whatever – people who are heroes, people we want to celebrate.”
The Observer and Cineworld are asking people to nominate their hero and state why, in around 100 words, they deserve the chance to see the film with their chosen guests.
We are looking for seven Cineworld Big Heroes who will each receive a family ticket (four people).
To nominate someone, simply email

Entries to be received by midnight on January 18. Only the winners will be contacted. All other entries will be destroyed. Don’t forget to include the reasons you are nominating them.
Released on January 30, Big Hero 6 is the tale of a young robotics genius turns crime-fighter in Disney’s fun-packed animated action comedy.
“It has done really well in America. It outperformed Interstellar,” Luke said. “I am told it is the Frozen equivalent for sons and dads.”
Troubled 14-year-old technology prodigy Hiro Hamada (Ryan Potter) lives in the futuristic hybrid city of San Fransokyo. Helping him through his difficult teenage years is huggable, lovable, giant inflatable healthcare robot Baymax (Scott Adsit).
When a mysterious villain emerges to threaten the city, Hiro rises to the challenge.
But the biggest challenge will be to turn bumbling, caring Baymax into an Avenger.
