LIAF presents: Kids’ Club at Picturehouse Cinemas

May 27, 2017
10:00 am

LIAF is back at Picturehouse cinemas throughout the UK with another spectacular selection of short animated films from around the world. This screening takes place on Saturday 27 May and is suitable for children aged 7+.

There’ll be 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.

This months’ selection of films includes a delightful song about the unlimited contents of a hippies bag, a magical ping-pong tournament, peculiar hedgehogs, happy hippos, a fox who can play the most beautiful tunes on a violin and many more charming stories.

Children are encouraged to vote for their favourites and tell us what they think about the films on show. Find out more here

Please check your local Picturehouse cinema for correct start times.

Tickets will be available for purchase from your local Picturehouse
