Still image from the film The Iron Giant
It’s October 1957, and America has plenty to be worried about—rock ’n’ roll, television, and the bomb. The Soviets have just launched Sputnik into orbit, officially beginning the space race. In a small town in Maine, Annie Hughes is just worried about putting supper on the table for herself and her nine-year old son, Hogarth, who is headstrong and imaginative. When a local fisherman comes into the diner with a tall tale about a huge metal man falling into the sea, the only one to pay him much attention is Hogarth, who sets out exploring to find the enormous robot. What he finds is a 50-foot giant with an insatiable appetite for metal and a childlike curiosity about its new world. The Signature Edition of The Iron Giant will be screened, which has been re-mastered and enhanced with two all-new scenes. (2K DCP Presentation)
