A kid who does the groceries, fends for himself in an empty house and keeps off burglars, too. An inspiration for the little generation, you'd say - and also bite your tongue soon after.
Treasure House is screening the movie "Home Alone", on 30th October, from 2pm to 4pm, for kids above 6 years of age.
Home Alone is a story about an 8-year old boy, Kevin McAllister, who is left in his house alone, as his family goes for a vacation to France, mistaking a neighbour's kid to be Kevin. Though his mother worries sick about him, Kevin does fine: he gets the laundry done, washes himself properly using his fathers toiletries, and goes to the store for groceries. The only danger to him are 2 local burglars, who want to take advantage of the (almost) empty McAllister house.
The rest of the film follows Harry and Marv, the burglars, as they attempt to burgle the house, and Kevin does a great job at defending it with various homemade ingenious traps. The traps include flying paint cans, a BB gun, and a doorknob heated with an electric charcoal lighter.
The movie is set around Christmas of 1990, and launched a series of sequels (Home Alone - 1,2,3 & 4). Director Chris Columbus specifically set out to create a film which captured the essence of Christmas, but with a modern spin. The makers wanted Home Alone to be the type of film which would be shown around the Christmas period for many years to come.
Treasure House members can watch the movie for free. Non-members must pay Rs. 200. Please contact 2355-0118 for further details.
