The Snow Queen
A showing Feb 11 2017 - Jun 17 2017
It’s Queen Emmeline’s wedding day, and the whole kingdom is excited! But when an evil troll banishes her sister and turns the King into a reindeer, it sets off an avalanche that puts the entire kingdom in peril. Now it’s up to Emmeline to save Snowdonia and the people she loves. With the help of her new friends Willa and Kay (who are dealing with a curse of their own), can the Snow Queen save the day?
