Our latest Forever Young lineup begins with two Oscar nominees for Best Animated Film. Starting April 1, it’s MY LIFE AS A ZUCCHINI. This bittersweet tale of an orphan’s healing journey boasts the voice talents of Will Forte, Nick Offerman, and Amy Sedaris. THE RED TURTLE, an impressionistic story about a shipwrecked man who is visited by a mystical sea turtle, starts April 15.
The series will also feature a trio of 90s gems: George’s Miller’s bizarre and wonderful BABE: PIG IN THE CITY (April 29 – May 11), Nicolas Roeg’s fun and frightening adaptation of Roald Dahl’s THE WITCHES (May 27 – June 8), and the beloved Robin Williams vehicle MRS. DOUBTFIRE (June 10 -15).
Film Streams is also proud to participate in The Seventh Art Stand through a family-friendly collection of short films from countries affected by the recent court-blocked travel bans. Organized by the Northwest Film Forum in Seattle, this 65-minute compilation (May 13 – 25) includes short narratives and documentaries from Iraq, Iran, Syria, and Yemen providing young viewers an opportunity to learn that children of all nationalities share common desires: to laugh, love, learn, find fulfillment, and live in peace.
Tickets for all films in the series are just $2.50 for children ages 12 and under. Otherwise, tickets are $9 general, $7 for seniors, students, teachers, military and those traveling to the theater by bicycle, and $4.50 for Film Streams Members. All screenings will be at Film Streams’ Ruth Sokolof Theater, 1340 Mike Fahey Street.
