Cinekid Festival celebrates 50th birthday of Thunderbirds
On Friday the 23rd of October Dutch festival Cinekid celebrates Thunderbirds 50th Anniversary! Grandparents, parents and children can enjoy the very first episodes of the legendary sci-fi series on the big screen. Thunderbirds 50 years! is part of Animation Day, which offers a special programme of new and old animation productions for the youth.
“What could be a better opportunity for (grand)parents to show their (grand)kids which series they grew up with? They probably never saw Thunderbirds on the big screen themselves!” – Erik Tijman, Senior Producer Film
