A Town Called Panic
Zoom continues for its 11th year with a fantastic assortment of acclaimed movies and entertaining events for all ages. One mission of Zoom has been to provide diverse and engrossing stories from around the world to central Ohio families. This year’s lineup is our most international yet with a film from each continent—a Zoom first! In addition to the great films, kids and families can enjoy fun and free activities together on Saturday, December 6, with our morning cereal and pajama party, hands-on crafts, and an ice cream social in the afternoon.
Cowboy, Indian, and Horse all improbably live together, and that's the least of the whimsical absurdities on display in this delightful European Claymation.
The unlikely roommates meet up with a giant mechanical penguin, parachuting cows, and a secret underwater civilization populated by pointy-headed bad guys who wear diving suits and goggles and look really, really weird. You'll have to see the strange situations of this world to believe them! This is the first film based on a popular French TV series of the same name that aired on Nicktoons (courtesy of Aardman Animation, the creators of Wallace and Gromit). It was also the first stop-motion animated feature film to be included in the official selection of the Cannes Film Festival.
In French with English subtitles. Occasional impolite language. Recommended for ages 8 and up. (75 mins., 35mm)
