A Trip to the Cinema is a great treat for kids and a way to keep them occupied over the long summer holiday. It’s especially good on those wet summer days when planned picnics have been cancelled. Even on hot days what could be nicer than a cool air conditioned cinema.
Here are my top picks of family films to watch this summer.
Thomas and Friends, Big World Big Adventures.
When my eldest was a little boy he adored Thomas and Friends, he had all the trains, all the books, all the DVDs. Sometimes I wished he’d never grown up because I loved Thomas too. I might have to drag my Little Man along to watch this new film.
Catch Thomas and his friends at the cinema from July 20th 2018
Hotel Transylvania 3: A Monster Vacation
I love the Hotel Transylvania films and I’m so glad they’ve made another. This time they are off on a cruise, I’m sure nothing can go wrong…right?
The film also has a timely message of love, acceptance and tolerance of those who are different.
Catch the film in cinemas now, rated PG
The Incredibles 2
The Incredibles are another one of my favourites. Who can resist superheroes!
Incredibles 2 truly shines as a sequel, with top critics claiming it has even outshone the original. Behind the hi-tech adventure that young and old kids will appreciate, there are genuine themes here that we can appreciate – the perils of parenthood, family stress and gender inequality. Smashing the box office, Incredibles 2 deserves a family cinema trip this summer, with lots of popcorn.
Released on 13th July 2018
Disney’s Christopher Robin
Now, I’ve never really been a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh but this film intrigues me. It’s set around a grown up Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor) who is helped by the stuffed animals of his childhood that have now embarked on our world.
You can catch Christopher Robin in cinemas from August 17th, rated PG.
Teen Titans Go! To The Movies
We love Teen Titans Go! It’s quirky and fun, and sometimes totally ridiculous.
The Teen Titans are a group of sidekicks and minor heroes in the DC Universe. They are very American but that shouldn’t be a problem with the young YouTube addicts of today. (Do your kids have American accents sometimes?) If your kids are a fan of the TV show then they should enjoy the film.
Released on July 27th
