The Way Back Home

Friday, March 29th at 16.15

When a boy discovers a single-propeller airplane in his closet, he does what any young adventurer would do: He flies it into outer space! Millions of miles from Earth, the plane runs out of fuel and the boy executes a daring landing on the moon. Coinci­den­tally, engine trouble has stranded a young Martian on the other side of the moon, and he`s just as frightened and alone. Martian, Earthling - it´s all the same when you`re in need of a friend. Come and find out how our hero gets home before joining in with some inter­ga­lac­tic fun.
Please call ahead and reserve a place!
