A NEW season of family-friendly film screenings opens at the University of Hertfordshire in Hatfield this weekend, with each movie accompanied by an arts and crafts workshop.
Saturday Morning Pictures takes place one Saturday a month at The Weston Auditorium, on the de Havilland Campus, and is aimed at children aged five plus and their families.
Each season follows a theme, and this term it will be films about ‘Little People in a Big World’.
The season begins tomorrow (Saturday) with Bridge to Terabithia (PG), the story of Jesse Aarons and his friendship with newcomer Leslie Burke.
Despite their differences, including that she’s rich, he’s poor, and she’s a city girl, he’s a country boy, the two become friends and help each other to overcome their personal difficulties.
Four more films follow in the season, including Matilda (PG), The Indian in the Cupboard (PG), James and the Giant Peach (U), and Arrietty (U).
The accompanying workshops are tailored to each of the films being shown and will develop children’s creative skills.
Admission is £2.50 per child with up to two accompanying adults attending for free. Workshops are £3.50 per child.
