About School Hols Special: Basil The Great Mouse Detective

Basil The Great Mouse Detective (1986)
Dir: Ron Clements, Burny Mattinson, Dave Michener, John Musker
U, US, Family Adventure 72mins

We like to offer you something a little different here at the Grassmarket Community Picture House. Disney films are a staple of most festive film viewing, however, during the 1980s the studio wasn’t anywhere near as popular a fixture of the holiday period as it is now. The golden period of Disney family films had given way to a more awkward and unusual assortment of darker releases. As a result it is unlikely that many of you have seen this zoological variation on the Sherlock Holmes story, featuring the voice of Vincent Price. Ripe for rediscovery this is a real treat for young and old alike.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for School Hols Special: Basil The Great Mouse Detective are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
