Poster for the film ANASTASIA


Presented on 35mm

The evil wizard Rasputin (Christopher Lloyd) puts a hex on the royal Romanovs and young Anastasia (Meg Ryan) disappears when their palace is overrun. Years later, the Grand Duchess (Angela Lansbury) offers a reward for Anastasia’s return. Two Russian con men (John Cusack, Kelsey Grammer), plan to pawn off a phony, hold auditions, and choose an orphan girl with a remarkable resemblance to the missing princess. They bring her to Paris for the reward, not knowing she’s the real Anastasia.

One of history’s stranger mysteries gets a Don Bluth fantasy treatment with charming characters, a visually stunning adventure, and an unforgettable theme song, “Once Upon a December.”
