Chapel Restoration Screens Swiss Family Robinson

Film series returns June 19

The Chapel’s Classic Films for Children series is back with an end-of-school-year adventure tale for the whole family. Walt Disney’s 1960 version of Swiss Family Robinson instantly became one of the studio’s biggest hits. The tale of a family shipwrecked on a deserted island, forced to contend with wild animals and pirates, is a must-see for kids and adults alike. The New York Times review went so far as to say that “any parent who denies it to the kids deserves to be ship-wrecked on a remote island.”

The event begins at 4 p.m. on Friday, June 19, at the Chapel Restoration (45 Market St., Cold Spring) with a special screening of a short, student-made documentary film Muhheakontuck – The Forgotten Valley, by Haldane students in Simon Dudar’s fourth grade class. Swiss Family Robinson starts at 4:30 p.m.

Suggested donation is $5. For age 7 and up. Some content may be unsuitable (and scary) for younger children.
