Where the Wild Things Are

15th Anniversary – 35MM Screening!

Feeling misunderstood at home and at school, mischievous Max (Max Records) escapes to the land of the Wild Things, majestic — and sometimes fierce — creatures. They allow Max to become their leader, and he promises to create a kingdom where everyone will be happy. However, Max soon finds that being king is not easy and that, even being with the Wild Things, there is something missing.

2009, 101 Minutes, PG, Directed by Spike Jonze

  • "Jonze has filmed a fantasy as if it were absolutely real, allowing us to see the world as Max sees it, full of beauty and terror. The brilliant songs, by Karen O (of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and the Kids, enhance the film's power."

    - Peter Travers, ROLLING STONES
  • "With Where the Wild Things Are Jonze has made a work of art that stands up to its source and, in some instances, surpasses it."

    - Manohla Dargis, THE NEW YORK TIMES
  • "What he’s (Jonze) ended up with strikes me as one of the most empathic and psychologically acute of all movies about childhood."

    - Scott Foundas, L.A. WEEKLY
  • "His film captures the wonderment of dreaming - and the reality of waking."
