Anne of Green Gables

Kevin SullivanCanada200 minutes1985GAges 7- 13ColourEnglish

This beloved television adaptation Lucy Maud Montgomery's classic novel became a classic in its own right when it first aired in 1985. "Anne" herself, Megan Follows, will be in attendance to introduce this special big-screen presentation!

Lucy Maud Montgomery's international bestseller Anne of Green Gables has charmed audiences for over a century. Almost as beloved today is Kevin Sullivan's critically acclaimed, Emmy Award-winning television adaptation, which follows Montgomery's heroine, 12-year-old orphan Anne Shirley (Megan Follows), as she's mistakenly sent to live with brother and sister Matthew (Richard Farnsworth) and Marilla Cuthbert (Colleen Dewhurst) in picturesque Avonlea, Prince Edward Island. Despite mishap after mishap, the precocious, wildly imaginative, headstrong Anne manages to charm her way into the Cuthberts' lives. From Follows and Dewhurst to Schuyler Grant (as Anne's "bosom" friend Diana Barry) and Jonathan Crombie (Anne's school rival, Gilbert Blythe), the entire cast gives outstanding performances. Featuring a beautiful score by composer Hagood Hardy, this beloved Canadian tale highlights family, friendship, and love, and is sure to find its way into your hearts and memories.
