The Phantom Tollbooth

UCLA’s Family Flicks program presents a free matinee of The Phantom Tollbooth, Chuck Jones and Abe Levitow’s adaptation of the classic children’s book by Norton Juster, at 11 a.m. Bored young Milo is transported to the Lands Beyond, a journey marked by a shift from live-action to animation. Puns and all manner of other wordplay abound in the uniquely inventive fictional world, where a war is being waged between numbers and words. Juster’s book may just be the best of its kind, and Jones’ adaptation was the famed animator’s only foray into feature filmmaking.
Sun., Feb. 8, 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m., 2015 (Expired: 02/08/15)
