Ijams Nature Center presents
Movies Under The Stars: Shrek
Join us at Ijams Nature Center on Friday, June 9 for Shrek, the cheeky fairytale that won the first-ever Oscar for Best Animated Film, established DreamWorks Animation as a powerhouse Pixar rival, and set the irreverent tone for a generation of family movies.
Once upon a time, in a far away swamp, there lived an ogre named Shrek (Mike Myers) whose precious solitude is suddenly shattered by an invasion of annoying fairy tale characters. They were all banished from their kingdom by the evil Lord Farquaad (John Lithgow). Determined to save their home — not to mention his — Shrek cuts a deal with Farquaad and sets out to rescue Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz) to be Farquaad’s bride. Rescuing the Princess may be small compared to her deep, dark secret.
