This delightful stop motion animation, featuring the voices of George Clooney, Meryl Streep, and Bill Murray, retells Roald Dahl’s classic tale of chicken thief Mr. Fox, who, after becoming a father, turns to a career in journalism instead. Unfortunately for his family, however, Mr. Fox sneakily returns to nabbing chickens in his midlife, drawing the outrage of local farmers and putting his family in danger. Mr. Fox and his family must hide underground to escape capture, and along with a hilarious band of cohorts, try to outwit the humans looking for revenge. Free admission. (Wes Anderson, 2009, 87 min.)
Producer Molly Cooper, who also serves on the Glimmerglass Film Days Steering Committee, will answer questions after the film. She is also the voice of Rabbit Girl in the film.
This event is free, but it is recommended to reserve your tickets in advance.
After the film, meet the Otsego County Conservation Association on the lawn outside the Village Hall for a free Get the Kids Out hike along the Susquehanna.
