Description: In order to claim his throne, Jason must bring back the Golden Fleece from the distant land of Colchis. Even with the help of Hercules and the protection of the goddess Hera, his foes are daunting: a cyclops, harpies, an army of skeletons, and the seven-headed hydra. This is a great introduction to the special-effects genius of Ray Harryhausen and a truly mythic adventure. (Don Chaffey, U.K., 1963, Digital; 104 minutes.) Family Film-goers can stop at Indie Food and Wine before or after the film for an afternoon treat like the "indie lunch box," a meal that features a New York State cheddar grilled cheese sandwich on multi-grain bread with an apple and house-made hot chocolate ($6).
