We’re back at Picturehouses throughout London and the UK with our latest Kids’ Club programme!
Animation, like childhood, can be full of wonder with the biggest pleasures being the simplest ones. This programme strips away all the soft-sell toy ads and the over-the-top blockbuster-style special effects and just delivers up a collection of wonderful films full of simple joys. These films are suitable for children of all ages but are specifically aimed at 5-10 year-olds.
Children are encouraged to vote for their favourites and tell us what they think about the films on show. Find out more here
Tickets will be available for purchase from your local Picturehouse
