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!

The General (Re. 2014)

Kids Club Classic, £5

Buster Keaton plays Johnny Gray, a Southern railroad engineer who loves his train engine, “The General”, almost as much as he loves Annabelle Lee (Marion Mack). When the opening shots of the Civil War are fired at Fort Sumter, Johnny tries to enlist — and he is deemed too useful as an engineer to be a soldier.  When his beloved engine – The General –  is captured by Northern spies, Keaton goes behind enemy lines to rescue both the girl and the locomotive he loves.  A hilarious chase ensues, punctuated by breathtaking stunts.

Brilliantly filmed and fueled with classic physical comedy, The General captures Buster Keaton at his timeless best.  As always, he performs his own stunts, combining his prodigious dexterity, impeccable comic timing, and expressive body language to convey more emotion than the stars of any of the talkies that were soon to dominate cinema.

For a joyous sample of the treat in store, take a look at this clip.  Kids – move over!

 

Cinderella

Often imitated, never bettered.  This enchanting 1950 Disney animation has all the ugly sisters, fairy godmothers, charming princes and glass slippers your heart could wish for. Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo!

LEGO

“A work of unbridled imagination, apt to delight sociologists, stoners and six-year-olds alike.” Guardian

Emmet is an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO mini-figure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously under-prepared.

Boasting beautiful animation, a charming voice cast, laugh-a-minute gags, and a surprisingly thoughtful story, The Lego Movie is colourful fun for all ages.
