How would you like to have an inexpensive daytime activity with your kids and support local charities at the same time? Then come to the Alamo Drafthouse this week for Kids Camp! This week, they will be showing Shrek. The unique part of this is that you can pay $1, $3, or $5-that is your choice! The money you pay for this will go to support local non-profit charities!
A damsel is trapped inside a tower guarded by a fire-breathing dragon. An evil lord, who rules his land with an iron fist, sends a hero to save her.
What if we told you that this damsel knows kung-fu? And that instead of a handsome, square-jawed prince, our hero is a giant, green ogre who smells kinda weird?
SHREK takes everything you know about fairy tales and turns it on its head, telling the story of a curmudgeonly ogre who is forced to go on a quest in order to keep his home in the middle of a swamp. Its world is jam-packed with wacky twists on just about every fable and myth you can think of, giving kids a hilarious new adventure to enjoy while also giving parents a fresh take on well-worn stories.
With its irreverent humor, its playfulness with the “rules” of fairy tales, and its all-star cast (including Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, and Eddie Murphy), SHREK became a sensation upon its release nearly 20 years ago, and it’s as fun for kids today as it was the day it came out.
