Kidfest 2006 Summer Film Series is a go! The series formerly known as “Peanut Butter Matinees” and scheduled four weekends in a row over July and August underwent a makeover last year as part of a Filmmaking/Storytelling camp for kids in grades 3 – 5. Now our series of classic and unusual children’s films takes place four days in a row the final week of July, with a different film daily (all 35mm prints!) at 12:30 PM. The exciting and fun-filled lineup includes: THE THREE STOOGES MEET HERCULES (1962, new print!);George Pal’s Academy Award-winning adaptation of H.G. Wells’ THE TIME MACHINE (1960); JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS (1963, with those legendary special effects by Ray Harryhausen and score by Bernard Herrmann); and this year’s nature doc, MICROCOSMOS (1996), winner of five French “Cesars” and perhaps the most amazing film about insects ever made.
So it’s sixties-a-go-go and bugs, glorious bugs, from July 24 -27 at Enzian. And you don’t even have to be kid to take part–I know where I’ll be eating my lunch Monday – Thursday!
