Mute is marvellous at these silent film screenings for kids
Surprise your iPad-addicted offspring with a series of silent film screenings for kids at the Fondation Jérôme Seydoux-Pathé in the 13th arrondissement. 'Contes et Féeries' ('Stories and Fairy tales') takes place twice a week, inviting film lovers from the age of six upwards to come and enjoy early adaptations of classics such as 'Cinderella', 'Tom Thumb', 'Sleeping Beauty' and 'Aladdin'. A world away from the catchy soundtracks and visual complexity of recent Disney releases, these silent films made during the early 1900s are an alternative introduction to the world of cinema for children. Talented young pianist Thomas Ospital plays along to the images.
>> Wednesday 2pm and Saturday 11am at the Fondation Jérôme Seydoux-Pathé. Check out the list of screenings here.
