It does not matter if your child is an in-betweener, energetic youngster, or still in nappies, the Barbican has arranged a film fest for each group.
Starting with Parent and Baby Screenings, this gives adults the chance to see the films they want to see without having to worry about who can look after the little ones. Screenings are specifically designed to be more baby friendly with early starting times (11.30am), lights left on, and the volume toned down. Tickets are £6, and only babies under twelve months are accepted. Films include 12 Years a Slave and August: Osage County. Show your ticket at the cafe and you can get a coffee and tray bake cake for £3.
The Framed Film Club is a new year-round programme of screenings for young people that takes place every Saturday morning at 11am. All tickets are £2. Films include Turbo, Frozen, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2, and Cinderella. There will also be a Box Full of Delights showing animated shorts from across the world, and a Slapstick Selection of physical comedy.
Focus provides a forum for 12-18 year olds to watch, review, and discuss the latest films. Tickets are £3 for under 18s and £5 for anyone over. Struck by Lightning is about an overachieving student wanting to get out of his dead beat town by producing a literary magazine. The only way he can think of getting good material, however, is through blackmail. C.R.A.Z.Y is a homage to growing up in the 1960s, and features songs by Bowie, The Stones, and Elvis Presley.
