June 25th • 3pm & 6pm | Movie Buffs at The Babcock Theatre
Celebrate 40 years of Don Bluth's directorial debut The Secret of NIMH on the big screen for Movie Buffs at the Babcock! Based on Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH, and rejected by the executives at Disney Animation ("we already have a cartoon mouse!"), Don Bluth formed his own animation company that focused on preserving the classic hand-crafted animation style and created this dark fantasy of Mrs. Brisby seeking aid from a colony of rats to help her son, only to discover a web of secrets much deeper than she could imagine. A uniquely complex and murky children's tale, The Secret of NIMH is a bonafide classic from a master storyteller that created worlds with depth instead of dumbing everything down for kids.
