Sunday, July 28 | 3PM
Presented in partnership with the New York International Children’s Film Festival
// FREE //
Recommended ages 3-7
Join us for a free summer family matinee movie screening. Basilica has partnered again with New York International Children’s Film Festival to show their best-of-the-fest Kid Flicks series of shorts. The screening series will include free popcorn for all attendees and will be hosted in Basilica’s 150-seat, air-conditioned North Hall cinema.
Bigger, brighter, bolder — change is in the air in NYICFF Kid Flicks 1, brimming with fun and clever stories of growth and transformation.
If you’ve ever been the youngest of the group, you’ll sympathize with the little tadpole who always falls a tad behind in the charming KUAP. Catching up on penmanship is the name of the game if you want to graduate from pencils in the winning doc Pen Licence. Then little ones are in charge and grown-ups get to play when the hilarious Flipped reworks the script.
This screening will be part of a regular series of free Sunday afternoon matinee movie screenings, which will also include Kid Flicks 2 (ages 8+) on Sunday, August 4, and Viva Kid Flicks (ages 8+, Spanish-language and Latino-themed) on Sunday, August 18.
