Flatpack Projects brings free screenings and craft workshops to the Mailbox

Mailbox, 7 Commercial Street, BIRMINGHAM, West Midlands, B1 1RS
Flatpack Projects brings free screenings and craft workshops to the Mailbox


On Saturday 17th – Sunday 18th August, families visiting the Mailbox will be treated to a free and unique cinematic experience as Flatpack Projects takes residence within the Urban Room.

The Digbeth-based arts organisation will take over the big screen on Level 2 to showcase a series of Colour Box shorts created by local, emerging talent in the film industry. Offering the perfect day out for both children and adults, visitors will also enjoy a selection of animations by American director, Wes Anderson.

Saturday 17th August's headline showing of Fantastic Mr Fox will follow Flatpack's free 'Crafty Like a Fox' arts and crafts session. Little ones will have the chance to create their own furry fox mask that can be worn to the film, which will be screened at 1.30pm.

On Sunday 18th August, guests will learn how to craft their own dog puppets before sitting back in the Urban Room deckchairs and watching the adventure animation, Isle of Dogs at 2.45pm.

The Flatpack takeover will complement the Mailbox's programme of free screenings this summer, including sporting, cultural and music highlights throughout July and August. Each weekend, guests can enjoy a blockbuster line-up of family favourites from the 90s, from Free Willy to The Borrowers, as well as enjoying Flatpack shorts before every film.
