The Secret of NIMH

The Secret of NIMH

Join us for a very special 40th Anniversary screening of the first feature film by acclaimed independent animation filmmaker Don Bluth (The Land Before Time, All Dogs Go to Heaven, Anastasia) based on Robert C O'Brien’s novel Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH.

Mrs Brisby is a mild-mannered mother mouse with a plan to move heaven and earth (or at least her house and home) to save her family from Farmer Fitzgibbons’s plough. On her way to find help, she discovers NIMH: a secret society of highly intelligent rats who have escaped from a nearby science lab and whose know-how might be the key to completing her quest. 

Parental guidance: Contains scenes that sensitive children may find too scary or intense.
