Roald Dahl on Film: Matilda
Dir: Danny DeVito USA 1996, 94 mins Cert: PG
Flatpack Assemble presents a special screening of kids’ favourite Matilda (1996). See the world from a kid’s-eye-view with ‘scratch ‘n’ sniff’ Matilda, a modern fairytale based on Roald Dahl’s much-loved book. Matilda is a super-smart little girl who is woefully misunderstood by her parents, her brother and an evil school headmistress but with the help of a brave best friend and a wonderful teacher, Matilda discovers she doesn’t have to get mad to get even.
Audiences are given a scent card and will be prompted to ‘scratch ‘n’ sniff’ different themed smells as the film progresses. A delightful experience for children and a trip down memory lane for adults.
