Chicken Run


Dirs. Peter Lord, Nick Park. 2000, 84 mins. With the voices of Mel Gibson, Julia Sawalha, Phil Daniels. Teaming up with DreamWorks Animation, Aardman created this successful first feature, based loosely on The Great Escape, focusing on a band of docile chickens who enlist a smooth-talking Rhode Island Red named Rocky to help them escape when the owners of their farm decide to sell chicken pies instead of eggs. Recommended for ages 8+.

Free with Museum admission.
