Winter Break: Family Films

Please note: Because of technical issues, Up screens in Lynn Wyatt Theater in the Kinder Building (instead of Brown Auditorium Theater as previously announced).

Revisit an acclaimed family film this holiday season. The animated adventure Up—exciting, funny, and poignant—offers an impeccably crafted story told with wit and depth. Carl (voice of Ed Asner), a 78-year-old widowed balloon salesman, is about to fulfill a lifelong dream. Tying thousands of balloons to his house, he flies away to the South American wilderness. But curmudgeonly Carl soon discovers that a little boy named Russell is a stowaway aboard the balloon-powered house.
