Fisher Heights will host it’s 3rd annual Family Movie Night on Saturday November 17 starting at 6pm at the Fisher Heights Community Place.
In 2016 we saw Zootopia, and in 2017 we saw Moana. This year we are going back a decade to bring Ratatouille to a new audience, children who were uanble to see the original — perhaps by dint of not being alive then — and to past audiences, the parents and grandparents who can now share the movie experience with their families.
Ratatouille was a bona fide critical and box office success in 2007, winning the award for Best Animated Movie at both the 2008 Golden Globe and Oscars ceremonies, and grossing $112 million at the box office. At the Rotten Tomatoes movie website it achieved a 96% rating among critics and 87% rating among audiences
Unlike the previous two movies, Rataouille is perhaps not as oriented to very young children. It is, however, fully entertaining to children older than 5 and equally, for their parents and grandparents. As the National Public Radio critic commented: “Kids are gonna gobble Ratatouille up; adults will relish its wit; and everyone will want to go out to eat after.”
The “critics’ consensus” at Rotten Tomatoes reads: “Fast-paced and stunningly animated, Ratatouille adds another delightfully entertaining entry — and a rather unlikely hero — to the Pixar canon.”
The movie runs for 110 minutes, and the show will begin at Fisher Heights Community Place at 6:00 p.m on Sat Nov. 17. As usual, there will be a draw at the end of the show for a gift card.
Feel free to bring blankets, sleeping bags or other items for your children to sit on in front of chairs.
