Marcel The Shell With Shoes On began as a series of short viral films and a highly successful children’s book. The new feature film has become the #1 independent movie of the summer. Marcel is an adorable one-inch-tall shell who ekes out a colorful existence with his grandmother Connie and their pet lint, Alan. Once part of a sprawling community of shells, they now live alone as the sole survivors of a mysterious tragedy. But when a documentary filmmaker discovers them amongst the clutter of his Airbnb, the short film he posts online brings Marcel millions of passionate fans, as well as unprecedented dangers and hope at finding his long-lost family. A beloved character gets his big-screen debut in this hilarious and heartwarming story about finding connections in the smallest corners.
To promote summer reading, the producers of Marcel The Shell With Shoes On have partnered with the American Library Association.
Marcel The Shell With Shoes On will be shown at The Park Theatre from Friday, August 5 until Thursday, August 11, with no screening on Monday, August 8.
