Hugo in 3D

With Film Strip Projection Activity!

Hugo tells the story of an orphan boy living a secret life in the walls of a Paris train station. With the help of an eccentric girl, he searches for the answer to a mystery linking the father he recently lost, the ill-tempered toy shop owner living below him, and a heart shaped lock, seemingly without a key.

Based on Brian Selznick’s award winning and imaginative New York Times bestseller, The Invention of Hugo Cabret, this magical tale is Academy Award-winner Martin Scorsese’s first film shot in 3D.

Join us at the Media Arts Lab after the screening for a hands-on activity where viewers can draw on film strips and project them! The activity includes a film projection demonstration by JBFC projectionists. The screening will be introduced by Series Curator Monica Castillo.

"Hugo both ticks and flies by, a marvel meant to be pulled from the cabinet and enjoyed again and again."
