Film
Thursday, November 17
7 pm
Cost: Free
A young boy named Kubo must locate a magical suit of armor worn by his late father in order to defeat a vengeful spirit.

USA | 102 min | PG | DCP | Dir. Travis Knight

Young Kubo's (Art Parkinson) peaceful existence comes crashing down when he accidentally summons a vengeful spirit from the past. Now on the run, Kubo joins forces with Monkey (Charlize Theron) and Beetle (Matthew McConaughey) to unlock a secret legacy. Armed with a magical instrument, Kubo must battle the Moon King (Ralph Fiennes) and other gods and monsters to save his family and solve the mystery of his fallen father, the greatest samurai warrior the world has ever known. 

"The action is gorgeously fluid, the idiosyncratic 3-D visual conceits are startling, and the story and its metaphors resolve in unexpected and moving ways."
- Glenn Kenny (The NYTimes)
