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 last thing Charlotte and Ben expected was for Santa to crash-land onto their street in the middle of a thunderstorm just before Christmas! And this is only the beginning of what turns out to be a remarkable series of Christmas adventures, including chases, fake Santas and vicious nutcrackers to name just a few..
Based on the novel by best-selling German author Cornelia Funke (who wrote Inkheart and Dragonrider), When Santa Fell to Earth is a film that’s brimming with magic, suspense and lovable characters. It’s a thrilling ride into the fantastical world of Santa Claus sure to leave everyone in the Christmas spirit!
Welcome to the Hotel Transylvania, Dracula’s (Adam Sandler) lavish five-stake resort, where monsters and their families can live it up, free to be the monsters they are without humans to bother them. On one special weekend, Dracula has invited some of the world’s most famous monsters — Frankenstein and his bride, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, a family of werewolves, and more — to celebrate his daughter Mavis’s 118th birthday. For Drac, catering to all of these legendary monsters is no problem — but his world could come crashing down when one ordinary guy stumbles on the hotel and takes a shine to Mavis.
Aardman Animations (responsible for all sorts of great animation, like Arthur Christmas, Chicken Run, and Wallace and Gromit) invites you to set sail with the Pirate Captain (Hugh Grant) and his scurvy crew of beguiling miscreants. Grant stars in his first animated role as the luxuriantly bearded Pirate Captain — a boundlessly enthusiastic, if somewhat less-than-successful, terror of the High Seas. With a rag-tag crew at his side (Martin Freeman, Brendan Gleeson, Russell Tovey, and Ashley Jensen), and seemingly blind to the impossible odds stacked against him, the Captain has one dream: to beat his bitter rivals Black Bellamy (Jeremy Piven) and Cutlass Liz (Salma Hayek) to the much coveted Pirate Of The Year Award. It’s a quest that takes our heroes from the shores of exotic Blood Island to the foggy streets of Victorian London. Along the way they do battle with the pirate-hating Queen Victoria (Imelda Staunton) and team up with a young Charles Darwin (David Tennant), but never lose sight of what a pirate loves best: adventure!
Wholesome family frolics from the masters of Claymation, here incorporating the best of CGI to help move things along a bit. Just as a point of interest one single Aardman animator has, as their productivity target, to produce 4 seconds of screen time a week! When I tell you that this film has been 5 years in the making, you will begin to see why it is so darned good – that’s a lot of time in which to get everything totally right!
