The Tale of Despereaux

Wednesday, September 22, 2021
Show | 2:35pm
A diminutive mouse strives to make a mammoth change in his troubled kingdom in this adaptation of author Kate DiCamillo’s Newbery Medal-winning children’s book. A long time ago, in the distant kingdom of Dor, a horrible accident broke the heart of the king, left a beautiful princess crestfallen, and filled the townspeople with despair. As the sun disappeared from the sky and the flowers were drained of color, the laughter slowly ceased in this once-magical land. It was into this darkened world that a tiny mouse named Despereaux Tilling was born, and while this virtuous little rodent may have been short in stature, his bravery was ultimately too big for such a small world to contain. 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.
