The Sid Williams Theatre Society will close out this season of family films with Babe on Sunday, Feb. 8 at 2 p.m.
Nominated for seven Academy Awards including Best Picture, Babe is the inspirational story of a shy Yorkshire piglet who doesn’t quite know his place in the world.
But when farmer Hoggett (James Cromwell) wins him at the county fair, Babe discovers that he can be anything he wants to be – even an award-winning sheepdog! With the help of a delightful assortment of barnyard friends, the heroic little pig is headed for the challenge of his life in this endearing and fun-filled tale the whole family will love.
Babe received high praise from critics upon release. In his review for ReelViews, James Berardinelli writes, “Through a mixture of imaginative storytelling, impressive animatronics, and irresistible cuteness, Babe casts a spell over all viewers – young, old, or somewhere in between.” Renowned critic Roger Ebert similarly enjoyed the film, “Babe is a movie made with charm and wit… It knows things, and teaches lessons. And it is so well made that adults will find it entertaining, too.”
Don’t miss this fun and affordable afternoon for the whole family!
Admission is pay what you can by donation. There will be popcorn and prizes! Doors open at 1 p.m. on Sunday. The film begins at 2 p.m.
