Family Flicks Film Series: Nancy Drew, Reporter
Recommended for ages 8+*
Before Katniss Everdeen and Hermione Granger, there was Nancy Drew, novelist Carolyn Keene’s brave teen sleuth. In this high-spirited film, would-be reporter Nancy Drew is determined to clear the name of a girl accused of murder, bringing friend Ted Nickerson along for the ride. Despite car chases and tough guys, this dauntless young detective works to bring the culprit to justice. (1939, dir. William Clemens, 16mm, b/w, 68 min.)
*All ages are welcome. Feel free to take a break with infants and toddlers in the theater lobby.
