Next up in the Sid Williams Theatre Society’s family film series is The Rescuers Down Under  May 11 at 2:00 p.m.

Very special guest Captain Thunderpants joins the fun which also includes popcorn and prizes.

This 1990 animated film is classic Disney, full of adventure and heartwarming friendship.

Deep within Australia’s vast and unpredictable Outback, a young boy named Cody forges an incredible friendship with a great golden eagle. But when a ruthless poacher sets out to capture the eagle, Cody steps in to protect him.

Knowing he can’t do it alone, a call for help goes out that’s answered by the world’s bravest mice, Bernard and Bianca. Flying in on the wings of their hilarious albatross friend Wilbur, these top mouse agents are ready to tackle their biggest, most dangerous mission yet.

The film features the voices of John Candy (Wilbur), Bob Newhart (Bernard), and Eva Gabor (Bianca) in her final film role.

Don’t miss this fun and affordable afternoon for the whole family. Admission is pay what you can by donation. Doors open at 1 p.m. and the film begins at 2 p.m.

Generously sponsored by The Financial Team of Nicole Deters & Associates, these family films are fundraising events for the Sid Williams Theatre Society.

Come and see this exciting film and help the Sid raise funds for a new screen.
