The Tropic Cinema is once again hosting our Summer Kids Movie Series all summer long! Each movie will be shown on Saturday morning at 10:45 a.m.
Based upon the 1968 story “Iron Man” by the British poet laureate Ted Hughes, “The Iron Giant” is “a near-perfect, classical expression of imagination, combining childlike wonder and adult sophistication” (New York Press). The story begins when a giant metal machine drops from the sky and frightens a small town in Maine in 1958. Soon, though, it finds a human friend named Hogarth — and ultimately finds its own version of humanity, selflessly helping the townspeople in spite of their fears and prejudices.
