Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center
A young boy meets a restless band of little people through a time hole in his closet. He joins them on their escape from their employer (the Supreme Being) after "borrowing" his map of the universe's time holes to hunt for treasure. They run through different periods of history before encountering the Fortress of Ultimate Darkess, where evil lives and must be defeated. Terry Gilliam's lovingly crafted adventure is a funny, rambunctious delight (featuring, along the way, John Cleese, Sean Connery, and Michael Palin). (Terry Gilliam, UK, 1981, Digital; 110 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
