In this delightful 1980s caper, three restless boys find a way to journey into outer space. Science fiction fan Ben (Ethan Hawke), boy genius Wolfgang (River Phoenix), and bored buddy Darren (Jason Presson) travel in a cool see-through space bubble, make contact, and find out an eternal truth: aliens love television. Featuring kids who talk like kids and a real sense of play, director Joe Dante ("Gremlins," "Innerspace") gets what it's like to be a kid and, just sometimes, go intergalactic. (Joe Dante, U.S., 1985, Digital; 109 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).
Address: 144 W. 65th Street Manhattan, NY 10023
