CAST: Phillip Glasser, Dom De Luise, Amy Green, Johnn Finnegan, Cathianne Blore DIRECTOR: Don Bluth FREE FAMILY FLICK

An American Tail is a beautifully rendered animated flim that tells an overly familiar story in terms children can easily understand. Fievel Mousekewitz and his family of Russian-Jewish mice escape from their homeland in the late 1800s, boarding a boat headed toward America to evade the Czarist rule of the Russian cats. Fievel, however, is separated from his family upon his arrival in New York City, and he discovers to his horror that there are cats in America too (his father said there weren't). Fievel meets his share of friendly and hostile mice, and he eventually befriends a cat as well.

Doors open at 9:30 a.m. and the movie start at 10:00 a.m.

The overall quality of the animation -- baroquely executed if rather conventionally conceived -- makes it worth a look.
Pat Graham, Chicago Reader
Its sappiness is unmissably sincere, and such aching, embarrassing sincerity is never an evil thing in a movie.
Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
Can't resist any film with singing mice. Truly Bluth's best film.
