Family Flicks: Night at the Museum

  • This is a past program

History comes alive—literally—after a divorced dad (Ben Stiller), struggling to reconnect with his young son, takes a job as a guard at a museum with a magical secret: When the doors are locked and the lights go down, its exhibits spring to life. Stiller and the entire star-studded cast, including Robin Williams as Teddy Rosevelt, perfectly balance the film’s slapstick laughs with its heartfelt beats.
