Family Movie Night finally returns this week with Hugo!
The year is 1931. Twelve year old Hugo Cabret lives in the walls of a Paris train station, where he’s trying to reconstruct a mysterious automaton his father found in a museum’s basement. When the automaton begins working again, it only sets Hugo off on another quest: to confront its creator, the famous film pioneer Goerges Méliès, who’d much rather forget his old work.
Imaginative and a bit whimsical, Hugo takes viewers back to a time when the moving pictures on the wall seemed to invite endless possibilities. The film also explores the importance of family and the magic of human creativity, reminding us that true creative satisfaction comes from something deeper than worldly success.
