Thursday, January 2 11:00 am – 12:20 pm Family Film: The Wind in the Willows
In the first of two animated adaptations, Moley, Mr. Toad, and the rest of the right, proper riverbank battalion are portrayed with charm. True to the tale, Mole abandons his modest home in favor of an apprenticeship on the ways of the river alongside knowledgeable Rat; Toad’s enthusiasm for motorcars earns him a 20-year sentence; and young Portly the otter goes missing, giving everyone a scare. The lushness of Kenneth Grahame’s writing is preserved throughout the 1995 animated film. Ossie Davis Theater.
Friday, January 3 Family Film: The Willows in Winter 11:00 am – 12:20 pm
As a sequel to Wind in the Willows, this 1996 animate film provides a thrilling ride. “The Willows in Winter” zooms along with its bumpy adventures, all linked to the restless, irascible Toad. This time, the wily bugger takes to the skies in a search for Moley, who’s lost in a river-swelling winter storm. Ossie Davis Theater
