We’re back at Picturehouse cinemas throughout the UK with another spectacular selection of short animated films from around the world, especially curated for Picturehouses Kids’ Club screenings. This screening takes place on Saturday Jan 23 and is suitable for children of all ages but are specifically aimed at 4-12 year-olds.
There’ll be talking animals, seriously fun adventures and tales that spark all those little imaginations. Adults are allowed in if they have permission from their kids.
Animation is the most imaginative and engaging of all art forms and is the perfect platform to enthral and inspire the wide-open imaginations of kids. This programme – carefully selected with our youngest audience in mind – is always popular – and not a toy ad in sight.
Children are encouraged to vote for their favourites and tell us what they think about the films on show. Find out more here
