Take control of movie channel for a day

KIDS are being invited to take control of Sky Movies Family for a day.

On August 26, eight-13-year-olds will be asked to vote for what movies they’d most like to see on the small screen that day. A triple bill of the top movies will be shown back-to-back from 4pm.

One person who voted for the top three films will then be selected at random and whisked off to Sky’s London office to record a special dedication that will be screened ahead of their movie choices.

They will get to meet and record it with Craig Stevens, presenter of Sky Movies’ The Family Show. He will offer them help as they make their Sky Movies debut during an all expenses paid trip for them and their family.

Craig said: “This is such a treat for young film fanatics. We’ve got a great line-up of family films this summer on Sky Movies from the action packed classic Jurassic Park to the wildly successful animated blockbuster Monsters Vs Aliens.

“We thought what better way for families to enjoy time together than by watching a movie that they have chosen and get to introduce themselves on TV.”

The full list of films to choose for selection on August 26 is: City Of Ember, Fly Me To The Moon, G-Force, Jurassic Park, Monsters Vs Aliens, The Borrowers, The Pink Panther 2, The Rugrats Movie, The Secret Of Moonacre and The Wizard Of Oz.
