Festival of magic for tweens & up

Fantasy fans can snuggle down for some beautiful, epic tales with ADD Movies. Maleficent pits 2 of cinema’s greatest on-screen fantasy queens, Angelina Jolie and Michelle Pfeiffer, against one another, with Michelle playing the kind of outspoken racist hatemonger who’s not afraid to ruin family get-togethers for all time. We hope she gets eaten by mice. Jack The Giant Slayer sends the Jack And The Beanstalk fairytale on a twisty journey that turns it into an epic adventure tale in which Jack must stop the utterly gross giants from treating humans like a tasty pick n mix. Ewan McGregor’s voice work as Jack’s sidekick Elmont is a hoot. And for 3 afternoons around 3pm, your own fellowship will be able to gather together to watch director Peter Jackson’s Lord of The Rings trilogy.

There are also 4 Tinker Bell fairy stories (including Secret of The Wings) to enchant with rand adventures and quest – along with love, luck and fairy dust.
