Saturday morning cinema at the Atrium is back with the classic musical Mary Poppins on Saturday July 12 and Disney's blockbuster Frozen on Saturday July 19, both at 11am. All tickets are £3 – with free admission for accompanying adults.

Colouring in and other film-related activities will also be on hand for before or even during the film for youngsters.

The bi-monthly matinee will be Saving Mr Banks and as well as the film, tea and cake will also be served, all for £5.

Saving Mr Banks looks at the story behind the making of the Mary Poppins film, as Walt has to persuade the book's author to sway towards the Disney vision.

It stars Tom Hanks as Walt Disney and Emma Thompson as P L Travers, the story's author, and will be shown tomorrow at 3.30pm and 7pm, with the café open from 2.45pm.

Joseph Ballard, the Atrium's director, said: 'Families are a huge part of North Walsham's make-up, so we've responded by planning family-friendly morning screenings where anyone is welcome. With kids tickets at just £3, we want to encourage more people to come and share all we do here at the Atrium ahead of our exciting summer.'
