Cabin Fever: Fantastic Mr. Fox

Sun, Jan 5 / 3 pm
Free Admission!
Directed by Wes Anderson
2009, USA, 87 min

There will be free stop motion animation workshops offered by Art City one hour prior to the screening.

Director Wes Anderson and writer Noam Baumbach adapted Roald Dahl’s 1970 children’s book into an endearing stop-motion animated tale featuring a family of foxes. Mr. Fox (George Clooney) is a newspaper columnist who, after speaking with his lawyer Badger (Bill Murray), moves with his wife (Meryl Streep) and son into a new house in a hollow Beech tree. But before long, Mr. Fox is back up to his old tricks working as a chicken thief stealing ducks, chicken and cider from his neighbours.

Plays with: The Cat Came Back / Directed by Cordell Barker, 1988, Canada, 7:40 min / It’s the 40th anniversary of Fred Penner’s much beloved album and to celebrate we are screening Cordell Barker’s hilarious Oscar-nominated classic which also won the 1989 Genie Award for best animated short film.


What started as a dream in 2005 has blossomed into an annual rite of passage for parents and their kids. They can shake the snow off their boots and spend an afternoon at the movies for free every Sunday throughout January and February. The popularity of this series, aimed at children 6-12, means that families with children will be seated first. We appreciate your cooperation.

We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Assiniboine Credit Union.

     

Reviews

Anderson has pulled off the most elusive of goals: He's made a nonchalant masterpiece, a movie that feels dog-eared and loved before it's even reached our hands.
