HEAVY MIDNITES: Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (25th Anniversary!)

Co-presented by FREIXENET

We’re breaking out the big fun for an oversized adventure so entertaining it spawned multiple sequels, an amusement park attraction and countless childhood escapades. It’s wild, it’s wacky and it’s packed with personality as Rick Moranis invents a shrink ray that puts his family, the neighbors and the very foundation of science in pint-sized peril. Now the ¼-inch kids must make their way through a backyard jungle, facing hurricane sprinklers, dive-bombing bees, a runaway lawnmower and enough Disney-fied danger to thrill tots, teens and adults alike — and that’s all before we even get to the larger-than-life Cheerios! Honey, I Shrunk The Kids is family-friendly box-office magic full of truly spectacular visuals, hilarious comedy and non-stop action directed by Oscar-winning SFX master Joe Johnston (Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Empire Strikes Back) from a story by Cinefamily friends (and Re-Animator creators) Stuart Gordon & Brian Yuzna. Top it with a classic James Horner score, and you have a perfect movie-night-out for the kid in all of us. Co-writer Brian Yuzna in person!
Dir. Joe Johnston, 1989, 35mm, 93 min.
