Funny Panda helps ease quake stress
Adjust font size:

A Beijing cinema on Sunday invited 20 schoolchildren from quake-hit Sichuan Province to see "Kung Fu Panda."

The students, aged 16 to 19, were transferred to a Beijing school earlier this month. They all come from Mianzhu, one of the hardest-hit cities during the May 12 earthquake.

At the Capital Cinema, the young audience constantly burst out into bouts of laughter as the adorable panda Po strived to become a kung-fu fighter in the film.

Comedy films are a wellspring for happiness, and that is especially true for young earthquake survivors, who are vulnerable to psychological problems, Beijing Youth Daily quoted an unnamed psychologist as saying.

In light of that, the Capital Cinema has announced that it would offer free entry to the Sichuan students throughout their summer vacation.
