THE NEVERENDING STORY // Friday, January 18, 2013 // Midnite
For everyone that has ever made a wish, believed in a fantasy, or had a dream — hold on tight as an atom bomb of imagination, innocence & amazement bursts onto the Cinefamily screen in 35mm! As an existential Nothingness threatens the land of Fantasia, a young hero is assigned to complete a hazardous quest. As much a magical fairytale as it is about the magic of how an epic tale unfolds, The NeverEnding Story remains one of the most exciting and idea-filled adventures of the 1980s. Experience a pre-CGI fantasy trip of dazzling wonder (brought to you by the director of Das Boot) and revisit your old friends Bastian, Atreyu, Artax, and Falkor (the cuddliest flying dog monster this side of your deepest slumber), as they brave the most unforgettable journey of them all. C’mon, who doesn’t want to ride a luckdragon?
Dir. Wolfgang Petersen, 1984, 35mm, 102 min.
