FAMILY MOVIE MATINEE

FAMILY MOVIE MATINEE -- Sherman and his genius pet dog Mr. Peabody, or more accurately, Mr. Peabody and his mischievous adopted boy Sherman, embark on a new journey into the past with their homemade time traveling machine. At first, they enjoy witnessing significant past events and interacting with historical characters. However, when Sherman makes a galactic error and manages to rip a hole in the universe, their fun is over. The hole mismatches the trademarks of different time periods and sends important people traveling through time, changing the entire course of history. Now, it is up to the multi-talented Mr. Peabody to fix the hole before time runs out and history as we know it is altered forever.

Rated PG and the running time is 92 minutes.

FAMILY MOVIE MATINEE

FAMILY MOVIE MATINEE -- The classic fairy tale of Sleeping Beauty is turned on its head as the evil sorceress Maleficent becomes the focus of the story. Her back story is explored so that audiences will come to understand what it was that drove her to go to such drastic lengths to wreak misery in the life of an innocent princess named Aurora. Maleficent's past is marked with tragedy and unhappiness, which is enough to generate sympathy for this monstrous entity. While her malicious actions are inexcusable, it becomes possible to understand how she might have been driven to them. Establish characters are dusted off and get examined with fresh eyes, while new characters help round out a story that people may not understand as well as they think. Stars Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning and Miranda Richardson.

This film is rated PG and the running time is 97 minutes. FREE SmartFood and no registration required.
