One June 13, Filmworks presents the Oscar-nominated animated movie “Ernest & Celestine” at the historic Tower Theatre. Bring your kids!
In a tucked-away civilization deep below snowy streets, hard-working mice live in fear of the bears who live above ground. But Celestine, a mouse and a true dreamer, isn’t quite so afraid. After she narrowly escapes becoming breakfast for Ernest the bear, they forge an unlikely – and unforgettable – friendship.
Children and adults alike will enjoy these lovable characters, as they rise above intolerance and form a bond that is put on trial by the bear-fearing and mice-eating communities. In a classic tale of friendship against all odds, “Ernest & Celestine” beautifully blends traditional storybook imagery and simple animation with influences of watercolor painting. Kids of all ages will love the youthful, slapstick humor, while the “grown-ups” will appreciate the surprising depth of this memorable friendship story.
Presented in English, the movie’s dynamic voice cast features Forest Whitaker, Lauren Bacall, Paul Giamatti, William H. Macy, and more. Tickets are on sale now – get them today for the whole family!
