Movies on The Z’s Big Screen: Up, Starring Ed Asner
Where can the wind take you? Take a once-in-a-lifetime journey with Disney-Pixar’s 2009 animated masterwork – Up!
The Zeiterion and DATMA team up to screen this delightful hero’s journey that’s funny, poignant and full of life! This showing is part of DATMA’s Summer Winds series of events.
From the revolutionary minds of Pixar Animation Studios comes a hilariously uplifting adventure where the sky is no longer the limit. Carl Fredricksen (voiced by Ed Asner), a retired balloon salesman, is part rascal, part dreamer who is ready for his last chance at high-flying excitement. Tying thousands of balloons to his house, Carl sets off to the lost world of his childhood dreams. Unbeknownst to Carl, Russell, an overeager 8-year-old Wilderness Explorer who has never ventured beyond his backyard, is in the wrong place at the wrong time — Carl’s front porch!
The world’s most unlikely duo reach new heights and meet fantastic friends like Dug, a dog with a special collar that allows him to speak, and Kevin, a rare 13-foot tall flightless bird. Stuck together in the wilds of the jungle, Carl realizes that sometimes life’s biggest adventures aren’t the ones you set out looking for.
