Kids’ Club: How to Train Your Dragon (PG)

A hapless young Viking becomes the unlikely friend of a rare young dragon, and learns there may be more to the creatures than anyone assumed.

Set in a mythical world of burly Vikings and wild dragons, and based on the book by Cressida Cowell, this action comedy tells the story of Hiccup, a Viking teenager who doesn’t exactly fit in with his tribe’s longstanding tradition of heroic dragon slayers. Hiccup’s world is turned upside down when he encounters a dragon that challenges him and his fellow Vikings to see the world from an entirely different point of view. 

Kids’ Club: These screenings are open to all families with children, but are particularly aimed at families with children under 12. Unaccompanied adults will not be admitted.
