Matilda - School Holiday Movie

  • Franklin Palais Theatre 3388 Huon Highway Franklin, TAS, 7113 Australia (map)

See the world from a kid's-eye view with MATILDA, a modern fairytale that mixes hilarious humor with the magical message of love. 

Mrs. Doubtfire's Mara Wilson stars as Matilda, a super-smart little girl who's woefully misunderstood by her parents (Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman), her brother, and an evil school principal. But with the help of a brave best friend and a wonderful teacher, Matilda discovers she doesn't have to get mad to get even.
