ABOUT THE FILMS
In PIRATES DOWN THE STREET the ordinary coastal town Sandsborough is turned upside down when the Blunderbuss family arrives, a sword-fighting, rum-drinking bunch of pirates. While the respectable residents are appalled by the family's ship-turned-home, guard shark and pet octopus, Michael (12) becomes friends with the new boy next door, pirate Billy (13). In NINJA'S DOWN THE STREET, the town is turned upside down once again, when the ninja’s move in next door. After all, pirates and ninja's are sworn enemies!
