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.
