THE half-term films at the Empire will finish with two top kids' flicks.

Showing tomorrow morning, Friday, February 23, is the PG-rated Who Framed Roger Rabbit, a great family film with animation combined with live interaction played by Bob Hoskins.

Toon star Roger is worried that wife Jessica is playing "patty cake" with someone else so the studio hires a detective to snoop on her. 

On Saturday, the showing is Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken, also rated PG.

It tells the story of a shy adolescent who learns she comes from a fabled royal family of legendary sea krakens and her destiny lies in the depths of the waters.

The Wednesday afternoon matinee, on February 28, will be the PG-rated Leap Year.
