Hi smile I am planning a Year 6 sleepover for around 30 children. They will be 10 and 11 and a mix of boys and girls. I don't want Harry Potter as they don't all like that same as Star Wars. Also would prefer a film rather than Disney cartoon. Cant be higher than a PG certificate and preferably relatively old so they may not have seen it!
I am really stuck...what would you suggest please??

Mine loves Goonies, Labyrinth, Earth to Echo, Are we there yet, Chipmunk movies.

I really want to go old school!! Know lots of them watched labyrinth last year when David Bowie died as our cinema had a charity screening and a group went to that! Love the idea of goonies, how about cheaper by the dozen or mighty ducks? They all love home alone is there a non festive film similar to that maybe?
Thanks for suggestions

Ours (10 & 12) loved Who Framed Roger Rabbit!

No Patricia !!! Roger Rabbit still gives me nightmares - freaks me out. Cheaper by the dozen is good or freaky Friday x

Jumanji? Watched that with my 12, 10 and 6 year old last week, they enjoyed it.

I remember really enjoying Indiana Jones when I was a child. Jurassic Park?

Bridge to Terabitha (sp) - but they will all be in tears!

Home alone
Ghostbusters the original
Back to the future
Jurassic Park
Lemony snicket
Percy Jackson

Myfanwyprice Mon 27-Feb-17 12:35:33

Percy Jackson and the lightning thief or zathura - which is a sort of sequel to jumanji.

Or baby's day out - it's a bit home aloneish with lots of slapstick humour.

Cheaper by the dozen
Father of the bride
Parental guidance

DD is younger but loves all things Studio Ghibli, eg My Neighbour Totoro, Spirited Away, Kiki's Delivery Service.

Indiana Jones?

That Miss Perigrine thing has my friend's ten year old having nightmares. She was so disturbed. In a class of thirty, there'll be more than one sensitive child. I would go for pure comedy.

I'll tell you what my kids love - they are aged 9 to 16 mix of boys, girls. Mr Bean!! Not the film - the old TV programmes. I got a box set recently and they watch it at meal times cringing laughing all at once. Completely non offensive.

sunbird17 Mon 27-Feb-17 13:02:17

Matilda, The Parent Trap, Father of the Bride, A Fairy Tale (the one where the girls photographed fairies in their garden), The Borrowers, 101 Dalmatians (film not cartoon), A Little Princess, The Secret Garden.

JonesyAndTheSalad Mon 27-Feb-17 13:07:32

I'm pretty sure that a lot of kids that age won't like Mr Bean.

Snurf Mon 27-Feb-17 13:07:43

Maybe a bit too old school.....

Tron (original)
Flight of the Navigator
Bill and Ted
Back to the future

JonesyAndTheSalad Mon 27-Feb-17 13:19:32

Back to the Future has a near rape in it!

ArseyTussle Mon 27-Feb-17 13:22:56

Yes, that bit in Back To The Future is awful!

Bill and Ted though, that's fab.

2014newme Mon 27-Feb-17 13:23:40

Back to the future is a PG
Are you sure it features a near rape (whatever that is!)
