The Little Mermaid (1989) (U)

This animated classic from Disney sees the mermaid Ariel - daughter of Triton, King of the Sea - dreaming of a life on land, and one day dares to venture there against her father's wishes and travel there. Loosely based on a story by Hans Christian Anderson, The Little Mermaid features a vibrant dose of comedy alongside some classic songs.

Wonka (PG)

This musical family fantasy film is a sweet and charming origin story about one of children's literature's most beloved and beguiling characters, as eccentric chocolatier Willy Wonka looks to make a name for himself in the competitive world of confectionary.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (PG)

This follow-up to the ground-breaking original animation also expands on its themes of responsibility, heroism and the importance of family, as Miles Morales is drawn deeper into the multi-verse, where he encounters an entire world of Spider-People.

A Wrinkle in Time (PG)

Adapted from the classic 1962 novel by Madeleine L'Engel, A Wrinkle in Time tells the story of Meg and her younger brother Charles, who, following the disappearance of their scientist father, are sent on an extraordinary journey across space by three remarkable women to try and find him.

A courageous teenager follows in the footsteps of her ancestors by sailing across the Oceanic seas, where she encounters the demi-god Maui, who may hold the key to saving her village.

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (12)

The first entry in the popular franchise is a swashbuckling adventure in which a young blacksmith enlists the help of a chaotic rogue pirate - the "legendary" Captain Jack Sparrow - to help rescue a kidnapped Governor's daughter.

Forced to change schools and fed up of hearing his parents arguing, 15-year-old Conor forms a band to impress a mysterious older girl in this joyous and very funny coming-of-age tale.

Do the Right Thing (15)

Although it's a quintessential 1980s film, Do the Right Thing offers a timeless exploration on gentrification, racism in American and inner-city communities, as, on the hottest day of the year, racial tensions run high in a Brooklyn neighbourhood.

After being visited by his old friend Winnie the Pooh, a grown-up Christopher Robin ends up on a nostalgic adventure in the Hundred Acre Wood in this warm, funny and charming film based on the characters created by author A.A. Milne.

Brooklyn (12)

Unashamedly melodramatic, rich in elegant period detail and impeccably performed, this is above all a relatable story of a young woman striving to define her identity, as a young Irish immigrant starts an exciting new life in 1950s Brooklyn, but soon finds the past catching up with her.

The Hunger Games (12)

Adapted from the first book in the incredibly popular young adult novels, The Hunger Games is an extremely engaging adventure, in which an unequal post-apocalyptic society sees a 16-year-old girl volunteering to take the place of her younger sister in a brutal annual contest.
