The Athena Cinema on Male’s Boduthakurufaanu Magu is inviting children to a free screening of the 3D animated film “Despicable Me” this afternoon as part of a promotion to celebrate Children’s Day.

Schwack Maldives Pvt, which operates the cinema that specialises in showing Bollywood and Hollywood films, has said that the 200 tickets being made available for this afternoon’s 2:30pm showing of the 3D film will be provided on a first come, first serve basis.

According to the company, the film is being screened free of charge to try and appeal to families as a means of celebrating Children’s Day together in the capital.

“Despicable Me” was first released last year and has been rated PG for containing some rude humour and mild action.
