It’s time to go back to the movies with the little ones (and not so much) of the house after confinement. With the reopening of theaters, we have drawn up a list of the best films to watch as a family this year.
After the state of alarm, the cinemas reopen their doors and there is no better time to return with the whole family to the theaters to enjoy the best premieres for young and old. It is time to recall great moments in front of the projector and of course to laugh and perhaps drop the odd tear. For this reason, at SensaCine we have prepared a list of 13 films for everyone that you should not miss for the rest of 2020. Films like Scooby !, Mulan or Pinocchio, that will delight children (and not so children).
