To celebrate our annual Fairy Tale Festival, we are showing the 1985 cult classic Ladyhawke. As Phillipe the Mouse says to the knight Navarre, "Sir, the truth is, I talk to God all the time, and, no offense, but He never mentioned you."
The feature will run continuously throughout the day and is shown with subtitles/closed captioning. Snacks permitted.
In medieval France, knight Rutger Hauer and lady fair Michelle Pfeiffer both run afoul of evil-bishop John Wood. Through the auspices of bishop's confessor Leo McKern, Hauer and Pfeiffer are placed under a curse. During the night, Hauer takes the form of a wolf, while Pfeiffer assumes the form of a hawk by day. The two lovers can only meet one another as humans at dawn and dusk. The only mortal in a position to rescue Hauer and Pfeiffer from their fate is nebbishy pickpocket Matthew Broderick, who acts as liaison between the lovers. With the help of the guilt-ridden McKern -- and a convenient solar eclipse -- Broderick endeavors to set things aright. (Author: Hal Erickson)
