Flick-tastic kid’s movies These April school holidays bring a plethora of great kid’s movies from Smurfs: The Lost Village to The Lego Batman Movie, Boss Baby, Power Rangers and Dance Academy. For the little ones a must-see is Peppa Pig’s My First Cinema Experience: Peppa’s Australian Holiday. This is Peppa’s big screen debut and features nine new episodes and four Australian episodes. The Lego Batman Movie is a great flick for the whole family as Batman tries to work out how to work well in a team environment. It is very funny and great for boys and girls alike. There’s plenty here for the parents too. The live-action re-telling of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is a glorious piece which includes beautifully crafted songs, an enchanting cast and sublime costumes and sets. This film honours the original but also adds a few new touches. There’s no doubt that these school holidays we are spoilt for choice when it comes to kid’s movies. Read our Smurfs: The Lost Village Movie review here and our Boss Baby movie review here. Dirty deeds read out loud Imagine if your Dad wrote a dirty book.

The band soon expanded into colourful teenage power pop and burst onto the national and international stage with their breakthrough debut album  Reflector,  released in March 2000. Anthemic singles Mascara and Weir  made  Reflector  a blow-out success and  cemented the work as  one of Australia’s most loved pop albums. Ella and Jesse Hooper reignited the flame re-banding for the 20th anniversary of Queenscliff Music Festival in November 2016, a perfect fit as it marked 20 years since the siblings first started performing as Killing Heidi. Don’t miss Killing Heidi at The Gov on Saturday, June 3. Bookings: www.thegov.com.au | www.oztix.com.au
