Saturday’s tend to start mercilessly early in households with young 'uns; by 10:30 it can feel like the day is already half gone. Give yourself and your kids a break: mosey on over to 'our house’ for a Saturday morning playdate. We have an ever-changing diet of child-friendly fare (with nary an ‘E’ number or artificial additive among them!). This isn't a drop off playdate, though; all children must be accompanied by an adult (just as all adults must be accompanied by a child or two!).
In addition to our weekly Saturday morning fix we also schedule kid-friendly matinees during the school holidays. These can be very popular; pre-booking takes the guesswork out of the day's plans.
And we periodically partner up with Schooling the Imagination to offer kids the opportunity to learn about animation and film making, and then to see the fruits of their efforts up on the Lexi big screen. Take a squiz at what was achieved recently in a 2 hour workshop at the Lexi: Wednesday's film is here, and Thursday's here.
Kids stuff coming up:
Walter, the world's biggest Muppet fan, is on vacation in Los Angeles with his brother Gary (Jason Segel) and Gary's girlfriend, Mary (Amy Adams). They discover that greedy Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) plans to raze Muppet Studios and drill for oil on the spot. Desperate to save the Muppets' former stomping grounds, the three friends join forces with Kermit to reunite Miss Piggy, Fozzie and the rest of the gang to hold a telethon to raise the $10 million they need to save the studio.
