The Phantom Tollbooth

Family Flicks Film Series: The Phantom Tollbooth

A mysterious tollbooth and a toy car transport a young boy to a magical, topsy-turvy world where letters are at war with numbers in this live action/animated film based on the children’s book by Norton Juster. (1970, Dir. Chuck Jones, 35mm, color, 90 min.)

*All ages are welcome. Feel free to take a break with infants and toddlers in the theater lobby, where the films are simulcast on a large monitor.
