Film
Friday, October 30

Cost: Free
When a giant, mysterious were-rabbit begins ravaging their town and destroying its crops, Wallace and his dog Gromit must find a way to stop the creature in its tracks.

UK, USA | 85 min | G | DCP | Dir. Steve Box and Nick Park

Business is thriving for Wallace and his dog Gromit, who keeps rabbits off the town's crops by scooping them up in his mighty Bun-Vac 6000. All of a sudden... A huge, mysterious "were-rabbit" begins ravaging the town! Commissioned by the alluring Lady Tottington (Helena Bonham Carter), the pair must stop the creature from destroying all of the town's crops. At the same time, they must keep stuffy Victor (Ralph Fiennes), Lady Tottington's suitor, from shooting the were-rabbit and claiming all the glory for himself. What a nightmare! (EP)

"So much modern animation is technically brilliant and yet comes off as cold and indifferent. But Wallace, Gromit, and the people and creatures in their world always look warm to the touch. Someone made, and moved, all those bunnies by hand. It's impossible NOT to believe in them." – Stephanie Zacharek (Salon)

"Wallace and Gromit are arguably the two most delightful characters in the history of animation." – Roger Ebert (Chicago Sun-Times)
