A Minuscule Adventure

A Minuscule Adventure

Event Information

Mon: 11.30am
Relaxed Screening

Performed on Mon 11 Nov

Presented by FilmBath

This delightful and unusual animated tale stars insect characters involved in a simple enough plot: during a raid on a village shop, one of our heroes is accidentally packed into a box of chestnut purée and sent to the Caribbean. There is no alternative but for the whole gang to fly to the rescue. The appeal of this French production lies in the absence of dialogue resulting in a degree of visual flair and wit rarely found in its Hollywood counterparts. ‘A thing of beauty’ – The Observer.

Our relaxed screenings are designed for those on the autism spectrum, people living with dementia, and anyone who would benefit from a relaxed cinema environment. We aim to create a relaxed atmosphere where people understand the needs of others. Adjustments at our relaxed screenings include slightly brighter lighting in the auditorium, sound turned down, no trailers or advertisements, the freedom to move around, and a chill out zone in the egg café.

Mon: 11.30am
