Best of the Fest – Kid Flix 1: Recommended for Ages 3 – 7
Two young girls find primate pals in Me…Jane and Zoo Story. Fantastical journeys
provide new perspectives in One, Two, Tree, An Object at Rest, and The Girl Who Spoke Cat.
Tiny creatures are both welcome and unwelcome additions to someone’s home in Perfect
Houseguest and The Visitors. Young Fidel reminisces about his family new and old on his
Mother’s wedding day in Memories of the Sea. Wild characters plus delicious food equal a
perfect recipe in both Octopus and Tiny Tunes: Food. A simple lesson proves to be essential
in Looks while an important one is ignored in That’s Not A Good Idea.

A curious girl wants to add some color into her predictable, organized world where there’s aproper way of walking, looking — even eating soup! 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. Will call tickets may be picked up at The Cary Box Office beginning one hour prior to the movie.
