Family Flicks Film Series: Old Yeller

  • This is a past program

Recommended for ages 8+*

This Disney classic tells a timeless tale about a boy and his dog. When a stray golden retriever arrives at the Coates family farm, 15-year-old Travis, who is left in charge while his father is away, must deal with the pesky dog. Old Yeller eventually wins over the family by protecting them from the threatening wilderness and teaches them lessons about love, loss, and growing up. (1957, dir. Robert Stevenson, 84 min.)

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