Family Flicks Film Series: The Witches

Sunday Oct 18, 2015 11:00 AM This is a past program

Recommended for ages 8+*

Can a nine-year-old boy stop the Grand High Witch of England’s sinister scheme to turn all the children of his country into mice? The Witches is an empowering tale and a visual feast. This adaptation of Roald Dahl’s ghoulish classic features the darkly imaginative puppetry of Jim Henson and Anjelica Huston at her delightfully nefarious best. Grown-ups can’t be blamed for being mesmerized too. (1990, Dir. Nicolas Roeg, 35mm, color, 91 min.)

*All ages are welcome. Feel free to take a break with infants and toddlers in the theater lobby. 

Family Flicks Film Series

UCLA Film & Television Archive and the Hammer Museum have teamed up for a matinee screening series of new and classic family-friendly films from around the world.

All Hammer public programs are free and made possible by a major gift from the Dream Fund at UCLA. 

Generous support is also provided by Susan Bay Nimoy and Leonard Nimoy, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, and all Hammer members. 

The Hammer’s digital presentation of its public programs is made possible by the Billy and Audrey L. Wilder Foundation.

Hammer Kids is made possible through the generosity of the Anthony & Jeanne Pritzker Family Foundation. 

Hammer Kids has also received funding from supporters and friends of the Hammer Museum’s Kids’ Art Museum Project (K.A.M.P.), an annual family fundraiser. 

Additional support has been provided by Resnick Foundation, The Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Foundation, the Elizabeth Bixby Janeway Foundation, and the Art4Moore Fund of the Tides Foundation.
