Fathom Events and Warner Bros. Entertainment bring the beloved film, The NeverEnding Story back to select cinemas nationwide for a special two-day event on Sunday, September 4 and Wednesday, September 7.
The NeverEnding Story tells the story of Bastian (Barret Oliver) who, on his way to school one day, ducks into a bookstore to avoid bullies. Sneaking away with a book called “The NeverEnding Story,” Bastian begins reading it in the school attic. The novel is about Fantasia, a fantasy land threatened by “The Nothing,” a darkness that destroys everything it touches. The kingdom needs the help of a human child to survive. When Bastian reads a description of himself in the book, he begins to wonder if Fantasia is real and needs him in order to survive.
With this 1980s fan favorite, audiences will rediscover the magic and mystery as it was meant to be seen on the big screen.
And now, for no reason whatsoever, here’s a video of Falkor screaming and laughing.
