The Byrd Theatre announced this week more films in its weekend “Family Classics” series. On September 17th, the series continues with contemporary classic Hugo.

The historical-fiction adventure, using a 1931 Paris train station as backdrop, introduces young and old to early cinema and Georges Méliés – an early pioneer, and father of movie magic (special effects) – all through the eyes of 12-year-old Hugo Cabret.

The remaining fall lineup blends traditional and contemporary, with forgotten favorites and the under-appreciated:

  • SEP 17: Hugo (2011)
  • OCT 1: The Wiz (1978)
  • OCT 22: Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit (2005)
  • OCT 29: Casper (1995)
  • NOV 5: The Secret of NIMH (1982)
  • NOV 12: The Little Princess (1933) with Shirley Temple
  • NOV 19: Kiki’s Delivery Service (1998)
  • NOV 26: Chicken Run (2000)
