Recommended for ages 6+*
Absent-minded inventor Nick Szalinski accidentally shrinks his kids to the size of ants with an experimental shrinking ray and tosses them out with the trash—and that’s when the real adventure begins! Faced with the horrors of their own backyard, including giant insects, lawn mowers, and sprinklers, the group must rely on ingenuity to survive a day and night in an overlarge world. (1989, dir. Joe Johnston, 35mm, 101 min.)
*All ages are welcome. Feel free to take a break with infants and toddlers in the theater lobby.
