Gremlins posterScreening December 24-27

A gadget salesman is looking for a special gift for his son and finds one at a store in Chinatown. The shopkeeper is reluctant to sell him the `mogwai’ but sells it to him with the warning to never expose him to bright light, water, or to feed him after midnight. All of this happens and the result is a gang of gremlins that decide to tear up the town on Christmas Eve.

Joe Dante’s enduring Christmas creature feature is one of our unquestioned seasonal favorites, and one of the most wonderfully twisted, hard-PG family films of all time. (Watch out for that Phoebe Cates monologue, parents!)

“[A] delicious and unexpected surprise… a movie of wicked wit and startling invention, and it has a heart that’s at least a match for the special effects.” – Peter Travers
