Family Movie Night at SSTC

NEW ULM — State Street Theater Co., the Optimist Club, and the New Ulm Film Society are holding a special family friendly movie night featuring the 1989 classic, “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” at 6:30 p.m. Friday, April 19 at the State Street Theater, 1 North State Street. The movie runs 93 minutes and is rated PG.

When kids sneak into inventor Wayne Szalinski’s (Rick Moranis) upstairs lab to retrieve an errant baseball, his experimental shrink ray miniaturizes them. When Szalinski returns home, he destroys the device, which he thinks is a failure, and dumps it in the trash, throwing out the kids with it. The four children, now one-fourth inch tall, must survive the journey back to the house through a yard where sprinklers bring treacherous storms and garden-variety ants stampede like elephants!

SSTC Family Movie Night is made possible in part by sponsorship of the Optimist Club. Admission is $2. Handicapped-accessibility is available at Door #7 in the rear parking lot.
