Dir. Wolfgang Reitherman | USA | 1967 | 78 min.| Animation
“The Jungle Book is a testament to Walt Disney’s unique talent for combining flawless animation, great comedy and catchy songs. The final film that Disney supervised and produced before he died, The Jungle Book, based on the series of stories by Rudyard Kipling was released post-humously to critical and public acclaim. The film tells the story of a young boy (Mowgli), raised in the jungle by wolves, and his unwillingness to return to human civilisation.” (Neil Dawson)* Following the screening of Jungle Book, there will be a free claymation workshop courtesy of Freeze Frame Media Arts Centre for Young People!

babe Sunday, Feb. 22 • 2:00 PM
Dir. Chris Noonan | UK | 1995 | 91 mins. | Animal Comedy
“Babe” is the all-time great talking-pig movie, a lovely, intelligent gem of entertainment that is also rib-tickling funny. A novelty comedy that transcends its own nutty devices, “Babe” is about a pig who not only talks but thinks he is a sheep dog. Features talking barnyard animals and a lovable farm couple, the Hoggetts, played by American James Cromwell and Australian comic actress Magda Szubanski, whose plump, snub-nosed look carries a certain Miss Piggy charm.” (San Francisco Chronicle)
benji Sunday, March 1 • 2:00 PM
Dir. Joe Camp | USA | 85 min.“What begins as a pleasure trip for Benji and his adopted human family soon turns into a tale of mystery, suspense, and international intrigue in this 1977 sequel to Joe Camp’s hit movie, Benji. Without subtitles to decipher the mostly Greek dialogue, kids and grown-ups alike view the action from the limited perspective of this sweet and talented mutt.” Liane Thomas“Only a heart of steel can resist this pooch.” (Variety)
