Kids’ Club

Kiley from Fantastic Mr Fox

Alert Saturday morning parent

Every Saturday morning Rosie brings out her secret stash of pipe cleaners, glitter, glue, paper plates and other inedibles, in preparation for our Saturday Morning Kids’ Club.

Brilliantly inventive craft activities themed to that day’s film, so the 5-11 year olds can exercise the creative half of their brain, while the adults wake up theirs with a cup of strong Colombian (or a bucks fizz or a bloody mary – or whatever it takes).

Now at an earlier time – 10:30 – because we know that you will have been up since the crack of dawn already!

Matilda

Kids Club, £5

Tim Minchin’s marvellous musical of Matilda is a perfect reason to revisit Danny de Vito’s sparkling film version.

Mara Wilson stars as the bookish girl whose dreams are thwarted by her selfish parents (DeVito and real life wife Rhea Pearlman) until she is sent to Crunchem Hall school, where she discovers a talent for magic. Starring Pam Ferris as the terrifying Miss Trunchbull, this is a deliciously dark adaptation that author Roald Dahl would have loved.

Glitterball

Kids Club, £5

Quite possibly the most endearing Children’s Film Foundation entry, this low-budget award-winning charmer sees an alien left behind on a very 1970s Planet Earth, with only two young boys for company. While this alien comes in the very pocketable form of a little silver ball, it will eat through anything — which is why local thief Filthy wants to get his grubby hands on it!  Cynics have suggested this may have inspired Scorcese’s ET!

 

The Muppets Most Wanted

Disney’s “Muppets Most Wanted” takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid, Dublin and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine-the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit the Frog-and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais. The film stars Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard, and Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon.
