The Wilmette Theatre has partnered with educator, film critic, bon vivant and friend of the show Don Shanahan of Every Movie Has A Lesson to host a rotation of curated films that will feature some of the most beloved kids’ classics (and Home Alone) followed by a thought-provoking, fun post-screening talkback. Tickets are $10.00 for adults and $8.50 for children and can be purchased at www.wilmettetheatre.com.
The first theme of the series is “Mischievous Kids,” (April – June) that will teach kids a great deal about avoiding trouble when watching others figure out their own. Followed by future series including “Musicals,” “Fantasy,” and “Sports.”
