Films to grow up with

With a unique approach and an affordable price, The Magic Lantern invites children aged 6 to 12 to discover 9 films a year. Children are prepared for the film in several ways: A few days prior to each film showing, club members receive a small, illustrated leaflet describing the film. At the cinema just before the projection, The Magic Lantern’s competent presenters and actors perform a humorous interactive sketch pertaining to the film.
