PBS Kids! Film Series

Join us at Catamount Arts for our monthly PBS Kids! Film series for preschools, childcare centers and families with young children!

Every 3rd Friday (with occasional exceptions due to holidays) from 9:30-10:30am join us for latest shows such as Peg + Cat, Thomas and Friends, Curious George and much, much more!

Thomas and Friends are coming to Catamount Arts! Come see this month’s free PBS preschool film on Friday, November 17 from 9:30 to 10:30 am at the Catamount Arts Center, 115 Eastern Avenue in downtown St. Johnsbury, VT.

Thomas & Friends has sparked the imagination of young children for generations. The enduring and classic animated series is based on the much-loved books by Reverend W. Awdry, who created Thomas the Tank Engine™ to entertain his young son, Christopher, when he was in bed with the measles. The series features Thomas, a true blue engine friend who proudly wears the “#1” on his side, and a cast of track stars, including James, Percy, Emily, Henry and Gordon, as well as Sir Topham Hatt, Controller of the Railway, who keeps everything running smoothly. Thomas’ world is a place with a strong community spirit, typified by a universal willingness to embrace good manners and hard work, and a desire to be “really useful.”

Each episode features two animated stories, a live-action segment and a music video designed to delight children while helping to foster their social and emotional development. As young viewers join Thomas and his engine friends on exciting adventures on the Island of Sodor and beyond, they experience timeless life lessons of discovery, cooperation, and friendship.
