Disney classics? Yes, please.


A few weeks ago, my toddler and I sat through our first full length film at the cinema (Finding Dorey). We were supposed to be sharing the popcorn, but mummy wasn’t really allowed any. That small gripe aside it was really nice to know we could see a film together, especially with the prospect of (boo) the long sunny days eventually leaving us.

So I was really excited to see that Stratford Picturehouse has a season called ‘Vintage Sundays’ and, for the next five weeks, they’re showing a Disney classic at 3.45pm.

It starts this week (28th August) with Cinderella, which is a beauty. It’s not ‘wordy’ or burdened with a complex plot. There’s singing and dancing (bibity, bobity, boo!)- it’s perfect for toddlers.

You can see the full programme here, finishing with Aladdin on 25th September.

I’m definitely going to try and catch a few whether it’s to get a break from the sunshine or shelter from the rain.

What? A month-long season of vintage Disney films

Where? Stratford Picturehouse, Salway Road London E15 1BX

When? Every Sunday at 3.45pm from 28th August to 25th September.

How much? I think it’s the regular price of £5 for kids and £7 for adults.

Facilities and access? There’s step-free access from Stratford train station to the Picturehouse, which has a lift inside it if you want to take a pushchair with you.

  1. I’m really excited about this vintage season – will be a lovely thing to do on a Sunday afternoon! Hackney Picturehouse are also screening these classics, and I spotted that there is currently a 50% sale on annual membership which is worthwhile if you’re going to see a few films over the course of a year.
