Have you ever misplaced anything? This perturbing state of affairs has a very simple explanation . . . The Borrowers. This film will be shown on Thursday, August 14 at 1 p.m. Borrowers reside under the floorboards of our homes, taking great pains to go undetected as they ingeniously procure and live off of borrowed items. But a young boy befriends the Borrowers and they band together to save their home when an evil banker (John Goodman) plans to demolish it. We’ll provide the popcorn, bring your own drink!
