Classic Movies for Five Plus

4. Babe, 1995

A movie that has you laughing and crying in equal measures. A little pig that thinks he’s a sheep dog but looks as if its fate is set.

5. Honey I Shrunk The Kids

Calling all 80s kids, this is a truly iconic film. A dad shrinks his kids in a science experiment and then we follow their adventure until they size back up to full human.

6. Annie

Okay, we’ll admit that this is a love or loathe movie. But if you’ve got an all-singing, all-dancing kid on your hands it’s likely they’ll love this Broadway musical-turned-film.

For Tweens

7. E.T, 1982

The movie with the most heart on this list, following the journey of a little boy finding an alien in his backyard. Laughter and tears all likely.

8. The Goonies, 1985

A cult classic, The Goonies sees a group of friends find a treasure map and then search for the gold of pirate One-Eyed Willy while being chased by criminals also trying to find the treasure.

9. Home Alone, 1990

For many of us, it’s not Christmas unless Home Alone is played at least once. Little Kevin takes on two burglars after his parents leave him at home by accident at Christmas.  

Classic Movies for Teens

10. Grease

We try not to think too much into the bizarre love story, with Sandy having to turn from wholesome to leather-pant wearing to nab her man, and focus more on the incredible soundtrack. Rizzo for life.

11. Back to the Future

If there’s only one movie that the fresh generation should watch it should be Back to the Future.  Time travel, a mad scientist and a teenage boy navigating it all.

12. Labyrinth, 1986

This fantasy movie is one of our favourites. Sarah has 13 hours to get through the Labyrinth and save her baby brother from the gobblin king, better known as David Bowie in a pair of tights.
