Pixar's WALL-E is a high mark in the beloved studio's oeuvre, telling a Chaplinesque story that is at once a romance, a luminous adventure through the stars, and a cautionary tale. Long after humanity has abandoned a massively polluted Earth, a lone robot named WALL-E (Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-class) remains to fulfill his only duty: cleaning up. In-between shifts, he whiles away his lonely days picking up trinkets for his ad-hoc museum and watching musicals (Hello, Dolly! is a fave) with his pet cockroach Hal. When a ship arrives with a sleek new robot named EVE, WALL-E thinks he's found a friend and stows away on the ship when it leaves.
Culturally rich, inexpensive family fun featuring beloved classics and new favorites for all to enjoy. Hosted on the second Saturday & Sunday of every month. Admission is pay what you can per ticket, with a suggested price of $5 per person. In partnership with Books & Books and Coral Gables Museum.
