Described as four of the best films about childhood, the cinema will present films from different corners of the world Iran, China, Sweden and America.

A special question and answer session is to be held with a researcher on the documentary film, A Story of Children and Film, Sight and Sound writer Neil McGlone. He will introduce the screening of Little Fugitive, listed as “a glorious slice of 50s America seen through the eyes of a child”.

Marketing manager Hana Mallett said: “Many of the films being shown have rarely, if ever, been shown in UK cinemas so this is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to enjoy them and see the world through the eyes of a child.”

Saffron Screen is a not-for-profit independent community cinema, with a full size screen, 200 cinema seats, surround sound and both 35mm and digital projection equipment.

● Tickets are priced at the matinee price rather than the evening ticket price and are available from saffronscreen.com, the Tourist Information Centre and Box Office. Showing times on alternate Thursdays at 7pm, are: The King of Masks (PG), August 21; Hugo and Josephine (PG), August 28; and Little Fugitive (U) on Sunday, August 31 at 4pm.
