It’s hard to sit still when you’re a tiny person! We agree- so we’ve created Film Day – Fun Day! We’re taking out some of the chairs down front and adding play mats for our littlest guests. We’ll keep the house lights at half (so you can see your precious cargo) and show kid-approved films. Hey kids – nobody will shush you, make you sit in your seat, or tell you that you’re having too much fun! Moms and Dads can stop by Brew before the film and enjoy a specialty coffee during the film. Film Day – Fun Day is specifically set aside for parents and their children. This is a fun, interactive film experience that allows kids to enjoy films in ways that connect with them. Expect talking, laughing and playing during the film. You’re welcome to bring toys that do not make noises with you. 1997 Rated: G Run Time: 1 hour 34 minutes Animated The first feature from the 20th Century-Fox animation unit in Phoenix, Arizona, this is the ninth film produced and directed by the Don Bluth/Gary Goldman duo (An American Tail) and the first animated feature to be made in CinemaScope since Disney’s Sleeping Beauty (1959). This $50 million animated fantasy retells the story of Anastasia, daughter of Czar Nicholas, beginning with her childhood in 1916 Russia. After Rasputin’s curse on the Romanovs, little Anastasia is separated from her grandmother, the Dowager Empress Maria. After growing up in an orphanage, Anastasia emerges as a young woman called Anya. With no clear memory of her youth, Anya encounters entrepreneurs who seek an Anastasia look-alike in hopes of collecting a reward in Paris from the aged Dowager Empress. Despite demonic interference from Rasputin, the three travel to Paris where another problem awaits: the Dowager Empress is now skeptical of the parade of imposters.
