If You Can't Stand The Heat, Go To the Movies: Special Saturday Film Presentation of Wall-E
With beautiful animation and grown-up themes of consumerism, mass consumption and unrequited love, WALL-E is entertaining for the most discerning film enthusiast while at the same time capturing the imagination of kids. It's a visual delight.
This film is being shown in conjunction with our morning cooking demo series United State of Food, which centers on food supply education. Come to both events or just cruise in for the movie.
Saturday, July 13, 12:30-2:30 p.m.
Central Library, Level B2 Conference Center
Directed by Andrew Stanton.
“Pixar’s WALL-E succeeds at being three things at once: an enthralling animated film, a visual wonderment and a decent science-fiction story. Here is a film, like Finding Nemo, that you can enjoy even if you’ve grown up. That it works largely without spoken dialogue is all the more astonishing; it can easily cross language barriers, which is all the better, considering that it tells a planetary story.” – Roger Ebert. It also tells a story of humans who’ve lost touch with their ability to make decisions about their own diet and health – with disastrous results. A movie with a message – and still lots of fun. Bring the kids! 98 minutes. Rated G.
