Wes Anderson turns his inimitable style to Roald Dahl’s classic children’s novel, and the stop-motion results are, truly, fantastic. “An adventure in pure imagination that plays to the smart kid in all of us.” (Rolling Stone)

Cornell Cinema’s “Cinema Under the Stars” summer series, now in its 18th year, features another great audience-selected line-up. The four films will be shown outdoors on the Willard Straight Terrace, all with a cash bar, complimentary snacks and a great view! Patrons are also welcome to bring picnic dinners. Doors will open at 8:15pm and films will start at 9:30pm, after dark. In the event of rain, screenings will be held in Willard Straight Theatre. Tickets are $13 general/$11 students & seniors and can be purchased in advance online at CornellCinemaTickets.com. These tickets will be held at the “will call” table for pickup the night of the show. Any tickets unclaimed by 9:15pm may be resold. Credit cards cannot be used at the door. Terrace shows typically sell-out in advance, so patrons are encouraged to plan accordingly! Added enticement: drawings for three pairs of Cornell Cinema guest passes will be held at each of the four shows. For more information call (607) 255-3522.
