Ratatouille

For the first time ever, Disney and Pixar release their Academy Award winning film Ratatouille in high-definition on the big screen while the beloved score by composer Michael Giacchino is performed live by symphony orchestra.

Ratatouille is the tale of a determined young rat with a cultivated palate who gets an unlikely chance to do what he dreams of most – cook in a French restaurant in Paris. Circumstance lands the rat, Remy, to Gusteau’s restaurant, where the spirit of the late chef guides him through a bizarre partnership with clumsy clean-up boy, Linguini. In a hilarious chain of events that turns the City of Lights upside-down, Remy achieves his dream with his pal Linguini.

This live orchestra event is an experience to savor as the movie cooks up delectable moments again and again.
