Kids' Club: The Secret of Kells (PG)

A brave young boy goes on an exciting adventure to complete an unfinished ancient book, which is brimming with secret wisdom and powers. See it for £3 at our Kids' Club screenings.

In the remote Irish woods, Cellach (Brendan Gleeson) prepares a fortress for an impending attack by a Viking war party. Unbeknown to Cellach, his young nephew Brendan (Evan McGuire)—who has no taste for battle—works secretly as an apprentice in the scriptorium of the local monastery, learning the ancient art of calligraphy. As the Vikings approach, revered illuminator Aidan (Mick Lally) arrives at the monastery and recruits Brendan to complete a series of dangerous, magical tasks. 

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.
