She said: “As the UK’s oldest cinema, so many people have memories of coming here as a child for Saturday matinees, and we want to continue that tradition by bringing some well-loved favourites back to the big screen, along with some great new titles too.

“The Kids Club will new and exciting for children, but fun and nostalgic for parents, and a lovely way to create some new movie memories for families to share together. “

The first kids club screening will be Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Were-rabbit starring Peter Sallis, Ralph Fiennes, and Helena Bonham Carter.

The synopsis of the film reads: “Wallace and his loyal dog, Gromit, set out to discover the mystery behind the garden sabotage that plagues their village and threatens the annual giant vegetable growing contest.”

Other films set to be screened for the kids club include Paddington, Encanto, and Rabbit Academy.
