Fantastic Mr. Fox

(Wes Anderson, 2009)

Wex Drive-In

The Wexner Center brings the big screen outside for the Wex Drive-In series of free open-air film screenings on the Wexner Center Plaza. Bring blankets or lawn chairs for seating at these festive, informal events. All Drive-In movies start at dusk (generally around 9 PM), but you are invited to come at 8 PM to choose your spot and enjoy the company of friends and fellow film fans. On tap for the evening: beer from Seventh Son Brewing and wine from our cash bar, plus Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams (with a free scoop for members), Pam’s Market Popcorn, and pizza from Mikey’s Late Night Slice.

Visionary director Wes Anderson’s first animated feature.

Anderson (The Royal Tenenbaums, Moonrise Kingdom) utilizes classic handmade stop-motion techniques to adapt a classic children’s book by Roald Dahl (author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach). Mr. Fox has a happy home life with his wife, son, and their visiting nephew. But this quiet existence proves to be too much for him, and he slips back into his old ways as a clever chicken thief. He ends up endangering not just himself but the whole animal community, who must band together to save Mr. Fox from the clutches of the neighboring farmers. The delightfully inventive film features an all-star cast of voice actors including George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray, Willem Dafoe, and Owen Wilson. (87 mins., 35mm)

In the event of rain, the film screens in Mershon Auditorium at 9 PM.
