In the land of Fairy Tales, a grumpy ogre named Shrek and his fast talking donkey sidekick must embark on an adventure to save an imprisoned princess in this 2001 cult classic animated film that has earned a new life thanks to the internet and meme culture. Join us for a very special midnight singalong/quotealong screening of the nostalgic fractured fairy tale.

“Everything about SHREK is good. It’s all at once such an oddball movie and a towering achievement in animation; I think one fuels the other.” —Cory Woodroof, 615 Film

“With improbable finesse it buffs up some of the oldest tropes of storytelling and then gives them a mischievous tilt, so that we appear to be watching a celebration of a genre and a sneaky subversion of it at the same time.” —Anthony Quinn, Independent (UK)

“It doesn't take long to figure out that SHREK is not going to be your ordinary animated fairy tale.” —David Ansen, Newsweek
