A SPECIAL screening will be taking place at a film venue this week for the school holidays.
There will be a half term children's matinee screening of the PG rated Frankenweenie at the Foxlowe Arts Centre tomorrow (Thursday February 21).
From creative genius Tim Burton comes Frankenweenie, a black and white animated tale of a boy who brings his beloved pet dog Sparky back to life with monstrous consequences.
After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky in a road accident, awkward young schoolboy Victor, inspired by an experiment involving frogs, harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life with just a few minor adjustments.
He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor's fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new "leash on life" can be monstrous. Parents need to know Frankenweenie's tone is dark and creepy and could be very scary or disturbing for young children. This tale of a very young Frankenstein is a great introduction to the horror genre for older kids and tweens who are ready for some scares.
The 87 minute long screening will start at 2pm and admission will be £1 for adults and children alike.
The next regular Foxlowe Film Night, on Tuesday, February 26, will be of the 12A rated film of Beasts of the Southern Wild.
