The King and the Mockingbird
Paul Grimault
1952 | 97 min | Colour | Digital 

We are delighted to start a new strand of programmes for the little ones. Starting this month we will present a series of films, animations and cartoons to the wonder of children and parents alike.

"The legendary animator Paul Grimault (who had a profound and lasting influence on Hayao Miyazaki) and the writer Jacques Prévert collaborated for the second time in 1948 on an adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Shepherdess and the Chimney Sweep [...] at once a delightful adventure story for children, a devilish political satire for adults, and a handcrafted work of tremendous beauty for all." – Film Society Lincoln Center

Please note: Whilst we welcome children of all age we cannot accommodate prams in our venue. We also request that children accompany adults.
