April 04 only


The 60th anniversary 2K restoration of Halas and Batchelor’s brilliant animated version of George Orwell’s classic finally hits American shores!

In this animated film based on George Orwell’s novel, animals on drunken Mr. Jones’ farm, led by prize hog Old Major, gather to discuss their abuse. Old Major exhorts the animals to rebel. Boxer the horse, donkey Benjamin, pigs Snowball and Napoleon and the others agree, and when Old Major dies, they turn against Jones. But Napoleon secretly raises a group of puppies to do his bidding, and over time the efficiently run farm falters as Napoleon schemes to take over.

(A note for parents: ANIMAL FARM was written and animated for adults, and should be appropriate for teenagers, but due to violence and adult topics, may not be appropriate for younger children.)

72 minutes/UK/DCP
