Central Cinema is thrilled to be teaming up with EarthFest for a very special engagement of Pixar’s disarming sci-fi classic, which takes the stars to sound a dire warning about our planet’s future. (These screenings will double as family-oriented information sessions and previews of this year’s 20th annual EarthFest event, taking place at the Knoxville Botanical Garden & Arboretum on Saturday, April 20.)

WALL-E, short for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-class, is the last robot left on Earth. He spends his days tidying up the planet, one piece of garbage at a time. But during 700 years, WALL-E has developed a personality, and he’s more than a little lonely. Then he spots EVE (Elissa Knight), a sleek and shapely probe sent back to Earth on a scanning mission. Smitten WALL-E embarks on his greatest adventure yet when he follows EVE across the galaxy.
“An earnest (though far from simplistic) ecological parable, but also a disarmingly sweet and simple love story, Chaplinesque in its emotional purity.” – AO Scott
