Bring the whole family out to enjoy the overlooked 1999 cartoon masterpiece The Iron Giant! In this animated adaptation of Ted Hughes' Cold War fable from Oscar-winning director Brad Bird (The Incredibles, Ratatouille), a giant alien robot crash-lands near the small town of Rockwell, Maine, in 1957.

Exploring the area, a local 9-year-old boy, Hogarth, discovers the robot, and soon forms an unlikely friendship with him. When a paranoid government agent becomes determined to destroy the robot, Hogarth and beatnik Dean McCoppin must do what they can to save the misunderstood machine. This film is rated PG for mild language and fantasy action. Runtime 1 hour and 30 minutes.
