Movie: Babe (1995)

April 19 & 20 @ 7:30 pm

Tickets $5 for everyone

Available at Brown Paper Tickets, Tully’s, Harbor Drug, and at the door one-half hour before the movie

It’s a charming, witty, G-rated film that never condescends to its audience and has been enjoyed by millions of adults as well as children. It was nominated for seven Academy Awards. And its main character is a pig, actually the runt of the litter.

It’s “Babe,” the 1995 Australian movie about a wise old farmer and his ambitious little pig who goes a long way.

A big part of the film’s $30 million budget went into a barnyard full of highly realistic animatronic critters – Babe the pig, Fly the sheepdog, and more than a dozen others. The human cast is headed by Farmer Hoggett, played by James Cromwell, a veteran actor with over 160 screen roles and a single Oscar nomination, for “Babe.”

Locally sponsored by Jeff Cook & Becky Walsh, Grays Harbor College,  Great Northwest Federal Credit Union, Levee Feed & Pet Supply, and Swanson’s Foods.
