Film Streams announced its Forever Young Family & Children’s Series. Films in this series have matinee screenings on Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays, and kids get in for just $2.50.
The latest series starts with a two-week run of the new film ERNEST & CELESTINE. This adventure follows the unlikely friendship of an orphan mouse and a gruff brown bear.
Voice talent includes Forrest Whitaker, Mackenzie Foy, Lauren Bacall, Paul Giamatti, William H. Macy, Megan Mullally, and Nick Offerman.
The film was nominated for Best Animated Feature at the 2014 Academy Awards.
The series continues with four feature-length programs of Charlie Chaplin shorts, just in time for the 100th anniversary of Chaplin on film.
The series captures the debut of his indelible Tramp character in only his third onscreen appearance (KID AUTO RACES AT VENICE) and other, lesser seen roles. In his autobiography, Chaplin called this the most exciting time in his career.
Tickets for all films in the series are just $2.50 for children ages 12 and under. Adult 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 screening will be at Film Streams’ Ruth Sokolof Theater, 1340 Mike Fahey Street.
