The Boxtrolls

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Set in an old English town called Cheesebridge, a clan of quirky, mischievous creatures called the boxtrolls live below the streets where they have lovingly raised an orphaned human boy named Eggs. When the town’s boxtroll-catcher, Archibald Snatcher (Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley), captures Eggs’ boxtroll guardian, he decides to venture above ground where he meets and teams up with a high spirited girl named Winnifred. Together, they devise a daring plan to save Eggs’ family. Following the screening, join the Center upstairs in the Jane Peck Gallery from 2-4pm for fun, family activities featuring stop motion animation!
