Edward Scissorhands is a classic 1990’s film about an artificial man who was never completely constructed.

He has scissors for hands and leads a solitary life.

One day a suburban lady meets him and introduces him to her world.

As their story unravels, we are taken on a romantic fantasy journey that makes us laugh and cry.

Edward Scissorhands features Johnny Depp, Winona Ryder and Dianne Wiest.

From trimming hair to hedges and creating beautiful topiaries, come and enjoy seeing Edward work his magic with his scissorhands.
