Easter Fun at The Film House



You don’t have to be a film buff (but it helps!) to have a brilliant time at The Film House Leeds this Easter.  Part of the Leeds Young Film Festival, Leeds Town Hall has opened its doors to become a fantastic cinematic multimedia experience! There’s something for all ages; meet The Gruffalo, build with Minecraft, sing along and dance with Elsa from Disney’s Frozen.

There will also be iconic cars on display, from the Batmobile to the DeLorean in Back to the Future. There’s even a Parents’ crèche!

Batmobile (Tim Burton's Batman, 1989)

My two are looking forward to Flickbook Animation with David Bunting and the Giant Living Comic Book where the Minions from Despicable Me take over. Personally, I can’t wait to go on the Clock Tower Time Travel tour. Storyteller Matthew Bellwood takes you back in time to meet the man started it all by making the world’s first ever film…right here in Leeds.  Amazing to think that Hollywood owes it all to Louis le Prince and his film of traffic crossing over Leeds Bridge in 1888.

The Time Travel Tour leads you up The Film House’s Clock Tower, to the clock face itself, with magnificent views of Leeds. Tickets are just £4.50 per person (advance booking is required.)
