Free cinema for children.

A CHANCE to take children to the cinema for free is being offered ahead of National Schools Film Week.

Thousands of youngsters in South Wales can see a selection of movies between October 15 and 26, through funding from charity Film Education.

The annual celebration aims to support classroom teaching by providing schools with a powerful experience for their students that links directly to the curriculum.

More than 470,000 students and their teachers took part last year. This year films include Steven Spielberg's War Horse, science fiction hit Prometheus and computer-animated fantasy Brave.

In the average year, Film Education's activities reach more than two million schoolchildren, regardless of economic, cultural or social background.
