PLAYTIME: Family Matinees

December 8 to December 31

Playtime is Metrograph’s regularly-recurring weekend matinee series of studio standards, animated adventures, and foreign-language frolics, kid-friendly in content but selected because their quality has been proven plain to moviegoers of all ages. This calendar we’ll be seeing visits from the funniest two flailing Frenchmen in tan raincoats—Clouseau and Hulot—in all of film history; shooting for the stars with the crew of the Thunder Road and meeting the King of the Moon; talking with the animals and running with the rats of NIMH. So come along and revisit the movies you know by heart, take a chance on something you’ve never heard of—and be sure to hang around to talk about your favorite scenes over brunch in the upstairs Commissary.
