Midnight weekend screenings happen on Friday & Saturday nights (meaning arrive on Friday and/or Saturday night by 11:45pm for seating, the movie starts after midnight)!

Thu Aug 1 @ 3:00 pm: Caring for your little ones can be exhausting, and you deserve to have a little fun! So, we're offering some baby friendly screenings during the 2019 Pittsburgh International Children's Film Festival.

Watch a movie you actually want to see, and don't worry if the baby cries or needs to be fed—you will not be alone! Film volume will be low or with captioning (to accommodate little ears), and the house lights will remain partially lit.

Moms, dads, and any other caregivers are welcome!

Director: Carlos Carrera Run Time: 96 min.

Starring: Damián Alcázar, Héctor Bonilla, Marina de Tavira, Silverio Palacios

Mexico’s first-ever Oscar entry for “Best Animated Feature” is a dark fantasy about 8 year-old Ana, who goes on an exciting adventure with her imaginary friends in hopes of saving her mother from a terrible fate.

 

Important Note:

Though rated as suitable for children of all ages, the adventure is set in the 1940s and touches on mental health issues as it follows Ana, a young girl who befriends a pack of imaginary creatures elicited from the minds of patients at a psychiatric hospital. Ana’s mother who suffers from depression is one of them. Of those intangible friends, Bruno, a big-eared, green goblin-like entity, is Ana’s biggest ally in her search for her father. She must find him before a terrible procedure is practiced on her mother.
