This Walt Disney feature brings the 1972 Newbery Medal-winning Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH to life. This classic is a spectacular return to the shimmering, mesmerising deep-focus animation associated with Disney's classic period: A marvellous use of lighting to create atmosphere, dew-drops glisten from every tree, and the villains are as haunting as cartoon villains should be. Rated G.

Twilight (2008)

Vampire fans wholeheartedly sunk their teeth into the beginning of this paranormal love story between a young girl and her immortal love, Edward Cullen. Rated PG–13. 

The kookiest clan in town got the animated treatment in 2019. In this tale of spooky shenanigans, Gomez and his gang are waiting for a visit from relatives. However, things are turned upside down when a TV personality arrives instead and insists that the family's eerie hilltop home is standing in her way of taking down the entire neighborhood. Rated PG.

  • Family and kids

He's clever, enthusiastic, a 'can do' guy with attitude-and he's a mouse. Combining live-action with groundbreaking visual effects technology by the artists and innovators at Sony Pictures Imageworks, it's the story of a mouse who is raised by the Littles, a human family who learns to dream big and live large when they think little- Stuart Little. As Stuart embarks on adventures with a variety of characters, including his nemesis, Snowbell the cat, Stuart learns the true meaning of family, loyalty and friendship. Rated PG.

Rango is a chameleon who is dying to stand out among the crowd, though by nature he's used to doing just the opposite. When he lands in a new town and becomes the sheriff, will he be able to show his true colors? Rated PG. 


This one's for all the kids who've wished their siblings would disappear. In Labyrinth, teenage Sarah wishes exactly that—and the Goblin King (David Bowie) happily honors her request! Sarah only has until midnight to save her baby brother from a castle in the middle of a labyrinth, or else he'll become a goblin forever. The Jim Henson-directed film is a winner for any kid who loves magic, thrills and elaborate costumes. Rated PG.


Most folks find beauty in young love, new babies and iconic American activities like going away to summer camp, but the Addams Family isn’t any ordinary family. In fact, they’re gearing up for one of the most “normal” summers of their lives, and Wednesday isn’t having it. Will she and her brother brave the season’s most unusual traditions? Not without some serious sulking, plotting and competition. Rated PG-13.
