Helmdon Presents: Children's Films
A New Season of Children's Films - posted 27 Sep 2018, updated 04 Jan 2019
We show a variety of children's films in the Reading Room, usually on a Sunday afternoon during the winter months. Children can relax on a beanbag with a drink and a snack and enjoy the film!
Why children's films? The idea is to allow children and young people to experience the joy of cinema in the village by giving them the opportunity to watch films in a friendly setting, socialise with their friends. We also feel that it is important to show a wide variety of films not currently on offer in local cinemas (such as Japanese animation, independent films, etc.), making sure these film showings are accessible to all.
Children's film events are £2 per child (free for adults) and include a drink & snack for children and tea/coffee for adults. Dates for the 2018/2019 season are:
- 2.30pm Sunday 18 November
- 2.30pm Sunday 13 January
- 2.30pm Sunday 10 March
It's the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
We look forward to seeing you there and please tell your friends about it too!
