LIAF presents: The Best of Kids’ Club 2015 at Picturehouse Cinemas

November 14, 2015
10:00 am

This screening is suitable for children of all ages but are specifically aimed at 4-12 year-olds.

For a while now we’ve been teaming up with our friends at Picturehouse to bring regular animation programmes to cinema’s youngest audiences at Kid’s Club screenings throughout the UK. The children have been very busy putting pen to paper, telling us exactly what they think of the films on the voting forms that are handed out by the amazing Picturehouse staff at each and every screening.

The following programme has been created by kids, for kids. We’ve counted the votes – and these films are what YOU told us were your favourites throughout the year! Thank you to everyone who came along. Bring on 2016’s votes! Find out more here

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.

Please check your local Picturehouse cinema for correct start times.

Tickets will be available for purchase from your local Picturehouse
