Maine in the Movies: Charlotte’s Web (1973)

March 14, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 pm

Charlotte's Web

ACAF and Nordica Theatre are pleased to present a screening of the 1973 animated feature Charlotte’s Web as part of the Maine Film Center’s Maine in the Movies film series for the celebration of Maine’s Bicentennial. “E.B. White’s beloved children’s tale is brought to life in this animated film, which finds the young farm pig Wilbur (Henry Gibson) attempting to avoid a dire fate. Of all the barnyard creatures, Wilbur’s staunchest ally is Charlotte (Debbie Reynolds), a thoughtful spider who devises an intriguing plan to keep the gentle little swine out of the slaughterhouse. Although Charlotte’s efforts, which involve words written in her delicate web, seem far-fetched, they may just work.” (from MFC website)

The 1910 short silent film “Jean the Match-maker” will also be screened. “Jean the Match-maker” is the oldest known film made in Maine. The 13-minute film features Jean, the Vitagraph Dog, a collie from Eastport who — before Rin Tin Tin, Toto, and Lassie — was the most famous dog in the world.

Admission free, but donations to ACAF and Meetinghouse Arts will be greatly appreciated.
