Special Halloween Program. Film screening, discussion, and more!
Norman is a misunderstood 11-year-old who has the power to speak to the dead. His neighbors are afraid of him, his parents are worried about him, and his sister is embarrassed by him. It seems like everyone wishes Norman would just be normal. But lucky for them, he’s not. In addition to zombies, the town’s only “ghoul whisperer” will have to take on ghosts, witches—and worst of all, grown-ups—to save his town from a centuries-old curse. But will his paranormal activities be pushed to their otherworldly limits? Featuring the voices of John Goodman, Casey Affleck, Anna Kendrick, Elaine Stritch, and Kodi Smit-McPhee as Norman.
Join us for a special Halloween treat! Mark Shapiro from LAIKA Studios will host a post-screening discussion on Stop Motion Magic. ParaNorman is the stop-motion comedy thriller from the same studio as the Academy Award-nominated Coraline (2009). We are fortunate to welcome him to the Music Box for this very special inside look.
