Get ready for the prequel in style! No, this is not The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit—it’s a screening of Monsters, Inc. in preparation for the launch of the prequel, Monsters University, later this month. Practice your screams and join everyone else at the Central Library this Saturday, June 8, to watch Monsters, Inc. This screening is part of the Library’s Free Family Flicks series, the once-a-month film series for the whole family that shows in Wheeler Auditorium.
This animated feature from the creators of Toy Story shows us the life behind the scenes of things that go bump in the night. The big, blue and fuzzy James P. Sullivan (John Goodman) and his opinionated, one-eyed roommate Mike Wzowski (Billy Crystal) are two professional “scare specialists." Their job is to harness the energy created when they make little kids scream. This energy is bottled and keeps their society going. When they accidentally let a young girl named Boo into their world behind the closets and under the beds, it throws their lives into chaos. Boo finds out that the monsters are more scared of her than she is of them.
Directed by Peter Docter and David Silverman, 2001, 89 minutes, rated G, Walt Disney Pictures/Pixar Films. Featuring the voices of Billy Crystal, John Goodman, and Steve Buscemi.
