Summer Film Series: "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids"

Date(s): June 20, 2014
Time(s): 7 p.m.
Location: George Bush Presidential Library Center's Presidential Pond

As part of our ongoing celebration of the 25th anniversary of President Bush's administration, we're showing a movie he watched when he was living in the White House. Our second installment of our brand new Summer Film Series features "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" -- a family-friendly adventure of mythical proportions.

Wayne Szalinski (Rick Moranis) is an absentminded inventor who accidentally shrinks his children and two kids from the neighborhood with his top secret shrinking machine. The problem is, before he realizes what's happened to them he sweeps them up and throws them away! Now they must face incredible dangers as they try to make their way home through the jungle of their own backyard: flood-inducing sprinklers, dive-bombing bees, a runaway lawn mower and more. Released by Walt Disney Pictures in 1989, this film is 93 minutes long and rated PG.

Bring your blankets and lawn chairs as we enjoy this film under the stars by the presidential pond. Games and free refreshments will begin at 7 p.m., and the movie will start after sundown.
