Irish Film Institute -IFI FAMILY: PINOCCHIO


One of Walt Disney’s best-loved films, rumoured to be up for a re-make, is showing here for IFI Family following a very popular screening during our recent evening course on animation. Based on an original book by Italian Carlo Collodi, it is the well-known story of the inventor Gepetto’s big-nosed wooden puppet which dreams of becoming a real boy. He is granted his wish once Pinocchio keeps out of trouble and proves himself to be worthy. Jiminy Cricket is brought in to be his minder and keep him on the right track, but it’s not that easy . . .

Beautifully hand-drawn, it was Walt Disney Studios’ first feature after the hugely successful Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and it went on to be a box-office hit. In glorious colour and featuring some great songs, the film opens with Jiminy Cricket singing When You Wish Upon a Star.

Please note: This is a child-friendly screening; showing on Blu-Ray.

€4.80 per person, €14.40 family ticket (2 adults, 2 children)
