Pete’s Dragon (1977)

2h 8m / G / Comedy

Dates and Times

The original Pete’s Dragon was a bit of an underachiever in the Disney movie portfolio, which made its recreation in 2016 even more of a surprise. Disney had seen some success with inserting live actors into animated scenes in Mary Poppins and Bedknobs and Broomsticks, so experimenting with inserting an animated character into a live-action movie was a logical next step. The result was a memorable film for families, with strong character performances all around, and a step forward for the art form in general.

Rated G for general audiences. Doors open at 2:00pm

The Family Favorites classic movie series is presented by Bank of America, with media support from Tampa Bay Parenting Magazine and WEDU-PBS.
