The mythical triumvirate of Jim Henson, Roald Dahl, and Nicholas Roeg conjure magic in our frighteningly fun October Klassic Kidz screening!

While staying at a hotel in England with his grandmother, Helga (Mai Zetterling), young Luke (Jasen Fisher) inadvertently spies on a convention of witches. The Grand High Witch (Anjelica Huston) reveals a plan to turn all children into mice through a magical formula. When they find that Luke has overheard, the witches test the formula on him. Now, with the help of Helga and the hotel manager, Mr. Stringer (Rowan Atkinson), Luke the mouse must fight back against the witches.

With a deliciously wicked performance from Huston and imaginative Henson puppetry, Roeg’s dark and witty movie captures the spirit of Roald Dahl’s books perfectly - especially for Spooky Season!
