Children’s Hospitals

Children’s hospitals are often at the heart of our partnerships. From magical patient experiences and visits from our much-loved characters, to vital fundraising for services which improve the quality of life for families whilst in hospital -we seek to bring happiness and comfort to children and their families at a time when hope and resilience can be at it’s lowest. Additionally, we do our best to bring the entertainment of film to children; from providing up to date Disney DVD libraries to pop-up screenings of our latest releases.

Unforgettable Shared Experiences

We believe that the power of our storytelling and shared magical moments can help build resilience for children who are often socially isolated. From premier screenings of the latest Disney film to adapted theatrical performances of our hit muscials, we strive to create unforgettable experiences, in a safe, shared environment, that children and those closest to them can relax and enjoy together.

Helping Patients Feel Better with Film

We strive to bring the joy and escapism of cinema and film to patients who feel isolated and excluded whilst in hospital.  In Italy, research from charity MediCinema into relief therapy shows that 80% of patients who watched a movie in hospital felt less anxious and depressed, with a further 30% claiming a reduction in pain.
