As part of their continuing Movies Under The Pines outdoor summer film series, the Nevada City Film Festival will present the Pixar animated family feature “WALL-E”, Saturday, July 22 at the Nevada County Fairgrounds.
“WALL-E” is Pixar’s ninth feature film. Released in 2008, the film garnered six Academy Awards nominations, and took home the Oscar for Best Animated Feature. WALL-E’s stellar visuals testify to Pixar’s ingenuity, while its charming star will captivate younger viewers — and its timely story offers thought-provoking subtext.
Set in the distant future, a small waste-collecting robot named WALL-E inadvertently embarks on a space journey that will ultimately decide the fate of mankind. After hundreds of lonely years of doing what he was built for, WALL-E discovers a new purpose in life (besides collecting knick-knacks) when he meets a sleek search robot named EVE. EVE comes to realize that WALL-E has inadvertently stumbled upon the key to the planet’s future, and races back to space to report her findings to the humans (who have been eagerly awaiting word that it is safe to return home).
Meanwhile, WALL-E chases EVE across the galaxy and sets into motion one of the most exciting and imaginative comedy adventures ever brought to the big screen. Joining WALL-E on his fantastic journey across a universe of never-before-imagined visions of the future, is a hilarious cast of characters including a pet cockroach, and a heroic team of malfunctioning misfit robots.
WALL-E marks the fourth installment of Movies Under The Pines series, which will continue with Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo on Aug. 12, and The Big Lebowski on Aug. 26. The remaining two movies will be screened at Nevada City’s Pioneer Park.
Nevada City Film Festival brings in state-of-the-art projectors and sound equipment for each screening. An array of snacks, beverages – both alcoholic and non – are for sale. Local food vendors include Honest Pie, and Lazy Dog Ice Cream. Additional entertainment and games entertain movie-goers before the movie begins around 8:30 (or dusk). Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets or low-backed chairs, and are reminded to dress in layers.
