The Magic Lantern - a cinema club for kids

The Magic Lantern is an International cinema club for children aged 6 to 12. Its purpose is to help young audiences to discover the pleasure of cinema …at the cinema.

Once a month, club members are invited to attend an age appropriate, quality film in a real cinema. Exclusively for children (without their parents) but supervised by competent and responsible adults, children get a taste of the major emotions of cinema – emotions that parallel those we experience in our daily lives: laughter, fantasy, a bit of fear and sadness. They experience not only the pleasure of being at the cinema with comrades of the same age but also the “decoding process” – understanding the images they will see – thanks to an educational sketch which precedes the film and underlines one or several important aspects of the film.

Through this unique concept The Magic Lantern helps children to discover cinema as an art form and makes them aware of its different components: music, theatre as well as literature.
