A beloved children's classic comes to the Museum Center
The Museum Center at Five Points continues their monthlong "Movies In The Courtyard" with a classic children's movie from 1968 that has been beloved by every generation since.
Led by the amazing talent of Dick Van Dyke, "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" features strong performances from Sally Ann Howes as the aptly-named "Truly Scrumptious" (hey, it was the '60s), Benny Hill in a rare serious role as the Toymaker, and a truly disturbing turn by Robert Helpman as the malevolent Child Catcher.
The movie itself was adapted by legendary children's author Roald Dahl ("Charlie and the Chocolate Factory", James and the Giant Peach", to name just a few) from a novel by James Bond creator Ian Fleming.
For those that have somehow never seen the movie, a hapless inventor finally finds success with a flying car, which a dictator from a foreign government sets out to take for himself.
Bring your family, friends, blankets, lawn chairs, and snacks and have a wonderful night out with the movies.
