More than 100 children beat the summer heat yesterday at a special screening of Frozen for the annual News Kids Page party.

Shepparton’s Village Cinemas was overrun by children for the highly-anticipated party and was quickly packed with giggling children.

Kids Page co-ordinator Lisa Kubeil said about 120 children attended the special screening of Frozen.

‘‘Despite the temperature, plenty of families and kids came to the cinema to enjoy Frozen and have fun,’’ she said.

‘‘There were plenty of prizes up for grabs and kids had fun sharing their favourite jokes at the end.’’

Frozen tells the story of two estranged sisters — one with the supernatural power to freeze anything she touches and the other with a desperate need to reconnect with her cold sister.

Jack Norris, 11, said he enjoyed the movie.

‘‘It was awesome because it was a good story about two sisters and their relationship breaking up. My favourite part was when they got back together,’’ he said.

Dylan McMeeken, 8, said he liked sidekick snowman Olaf the most.

‘‘I liked it when he slid down on his belly,’’ he said.
