Current Movie: Willow – June 20
About This MovieMore
Out of the way, Peck! Willow is coming to the Egyptian Theatre on Wednesday, June 20 at 7:00PM.
When George Lucas and Ron Howard get together to make a fantasy flick, we get the strangely underrated Willow. Throw in a little Val Kilmer, some brownies, lots of magic, and put it in New Zealand 12 years before Peter Jackson turned it into Middle Earth and you’ve got yourself some first class fantasy!
There are two showings of Willow. This page is the All Ages show on June 20. If you’re looking for a little potion with your motion picture, head to the 21+ show on June 21.
Been awhile? Yeah, me too. Here’s a refresher:
A baby girl is discovered in a river by Ranon and Mims, the children of Willow Ufgood, a dwarf farmer and magician and the baby girl is taken into the care of Willow’s family. But when a terrifying dog-like creature attacks Willow’s village, whilst tracking down the baby. Willow consults the village council and the wizard The High Aldwin. The High Aldwin gives Willow a task and Willow leaves the village and embarks on the task to give the baby girl to a responsible person. But Willow soon learns the baby is Elora Danan, the baby girl destined to bring about the downfall of the evil sorceress Queen Bavmorda. Joined by his allies: swordsman Madmartigan, sorceress Fin Raziel and the Brownies Franjean and Rool, Willow takes it upon himself to protect Elora from Queen Bavmorda, who intends to kill Elora and prevent Elora from fulfilling her destiny. And Willow and his allies are pursued by Queen Bavmorda’s daughter Sorsha and the evil commander of Queen Bavmorda’s army General Kael, whom are searching for Elora and bring her back to Queen Bavmorda’s castle, where Queen Bavmorda bids to kill Elora in a ritual and prevent the prophecy of her downfall. –From IMDB
