Disney classic up next in Sid film series

Next up in the Sid Williams Theatre Society’s family film series is the timeless Disney classic Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey on Sunday, March 30 at 2 p.m.

This 1993 remake of the original 1963 hit follows three household pets as they travel across mountains and plains on their way to find their owners.

A misunderstanding leads the animals to mistakenly believe that they have been abandoned by their loved ones, when in reality they have been left in the care of a friend while the family has moved from the country to the city for the father to take a temporary assignment.

All three pets — a golden retriever (Don Ameche), a cat (Sally Field), and a bulldog puppy (Michael J. Fox) — can talk, and they bicker and crack jokes as they set off on a truly incredible journey chock full of misadventures as they find their way home.

Don’t miss this fun and affordable afternoon for the whole family. Admission is pay what you can by donation. There will be popcorn, prizes, and special guest Captain Thunderpants!

Doors open at 1 p.m. and the film begins at 2.

Generously sponsored by the financial team of Nicole Deters and Associates, these family films are fundraising events for the Sid Williams Theatre Society.

The Sid was a state-of-the-art movie house when it opened 78 years ago, then known as the Bickle Theatre. Over the years, theatre technology has seen many incredible changes, but the speed of change and cost required to keep up with those changes is an ongoing challenge.

Funds raised are earmarked for technical upgrades, primarily a new screen.
