Dress up as an adventurer for a vigil with “Inspector Sun and the Curse of the Black Widow”

For several years now, Cinoch’ has been aiming to close the festival with sessions “just like at home”, with sofas, deckchairs, pillows, blankets, etc. They take place in the village hall, with two options: in the morning for the little ones, in the evening for the older ones. This year, on October 31, after “Les Tourrouges et les Toutbleus”, a modeling clay activity will be offered to the little ones.

Linda, Nina, the two “favorites”

In the rich programming of Cinoch’, Jérôme Jorand is keen to particularly defend two French animated films.

■ Linda wants chicken, by Chiara Malta and Sébastien Laudenbach. From 6 years old. “The characters each have their own color, it’s really original. The story is super cool. Linda, a little girl, absolutely wants her mother to prepare chicken and peppers for her, a dish that her father made for her when she was little. As it’s a strike, the stores are closed and his mother will have difficulty finding chicken. It’s adventure, it talks about other people, about neighborhood life and visually, it’s really great! »

Around this film, a special screening will be offered with an escape game “The chicken doesn’t want to go into the pan”, created by the distributors, and which will be followed at the Passerelle by a meal with chicken with homemade peppers. Saturday October 21, from 6:30 p.m., limited to 25 people, upon registration.

■ Nina and the secret of the hedgehog, by Alain Gagnol and Jean-Loup Felicioli. From 6 years old. “They are the authors of Phantom boy and D’A cat’s life, we recognize their universe, these characters with almond-shaped eyes. It’s a social thriller again. Nina’s dad tells his daughter the story of a hedgehog he found in his factory. But the factory closes, he finds himself unemployed. To help the laid-off workers, Nina and her friend Mehdi will try to find money that would have been hidden in the factory…”

Hunting for a mystery film

This is the great novelty of this edition of Cinoch’. Sunday, October 22, at 4:30 p.m., treasure hunt enthusiasts will be able to go hunting for a mystery film. Departing from the Passerelle, participants, as a family, will have one hour to complete the route, dotted with small challenges to overcome. They will arrive in a mysterious and unique place for the screening of an equally mysterious film. We know everything, but we won’t say anything. Just know that this is a highly anticipated “big piece”, presented in preview. So, grab your smartphones (obligatory for the treasure hunt).

PARTICIPATE Sunday October 22 at 4:30 p.m. From 7 years old, price: €6. Limited places, registration required at the Passerelle reception.
