Millimages and Belgian cinema chain, Kinepolis, have announced the premiere of “Molang’s” first cinema film event. Opening Sept. 1 and distributed by the chain’s distribution arm, Kinepolis Film Distribution France, “Molang at the Movies” will screen in over 40 cinemas across France, Spain, Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg.

“Molang at the Movies” is a 55-minute family film compiled from “Molang’s” catalog comprising six preschool TV series. Aimed principally at preschoolers and their parents, the movie features Molang taking care of its surroundings, whether helping a turtle in need or cleaning up the galaxy. For added entertainment, there will be a five-minute break in the middle of the film for two on-screen games (a spot-the-difference and a counting game).

“We are thrilled to announce this release,” says Steven Clerima, head, international event cinema, Kinepolis Group. “‘Molang’ is an exceptional show that has earned worldwide acclaim in the animation industry. It possesses all the qualities needed to captivate our audience across Europe: charming and emotive characters, superb music and storytelling and a distinctive visual style. We believe that ‘Molang’s’ unique charm and heartwarming narratives will resonate deeply with viewers of all ages, making it a standout addition to our programming lineup.”

“The Millimages team and I are thrilled to be a part of this milestone for ‘Molang,’” says Mathilde Bayle, head, communication, brand image and marketing, Millimages. “Just like all the young kids who will come to see the movie, a first time in the cinema is a truly big deal – and in five countries at the same time, no less. ‘Molang’ has already conquered social media and TV everywhere with its message of kindness and unwavering positivity; what a joy to be a part of this next chapter.”

Leading up to the launch, there will be a broad promotional campaign, such as avant-premieres in Lille, Bruxelles, Madrid and Utrecht with exclusive merchandise for each moviegoer and teaser campaigns in cinemas over the summer, as well as on “Molang’s” social media platform.
