Out of all the pleasures that film provides us, few are as pure as the capacity it offers for escapism, and an ability to take us into worlds beyond imagination.

For many of us, it is early experiences watching such films on the big screen that form the basis of a lifelong love of cinema. Swashbuckling heroes, magical secrets, ghostly creatures, and a healthy sprinkling of talking animals all feature in stories that celebrate the wondrous and dazzle us with their spectacle, alongside gentler, more human takes on the spirit of adventure.
