Event Information

When kids sneak into inventor Wayne Szalinski's (Rick Moranis) upstairs lab to retrieve an errant baseball, his experimental shrink ray miniaturizes them. When Szalinski returns home, he destroys the device -- which he thinks is a failure -- and dumps it in the trash, throwing out the kids along with it. The four children, now 1/4-inch tall, must survive the journey back to the house through a yard where sprinklers bring treacherous storms and garden-variety ants stampede like elephants.

Screening in association with the Arts & Science Festival, this madcap family favourite will be preceded by a Make Your Own Particle workshop led by Professor Cristina Lazzeroni, giving families the chance to make their own subatomic particle with an array of decorations and their own imaginations!

This screening will be preceded by a drop-in workshop which will begin at 10am and run for approximately an hour. The screening is expected to begin at approximately 11.15am.

Flatpack Festival's family strand Colour Box is now hosting screenings on the first Saturday of every month at Midlands Arts Centre. Expect a range of film screenings, from classic children's TV programmes to the latest animated features. And every month there'll be creative hands-on workshop activity alongside the screening. See. Explore. Create.
