Family Flicks Film Series: Space Jam

Enslaved by the evil owner of a planetary amusement park, Bugs, Daffy, Porky, Elmer, Tweety, and the gang fight for freedom in an epic hoops showdown. Featuring an incredible soundtrack by a mid-1990s R&B dream team boasting Seal, D’Angelo, Salt-N-Pepa, and Quad City DJ’s. (1996, dir. Joe Pytka, 35mm, 88 min.)
