Spider, centipede and ladybug star in James and the Giant Peach, next Summer Reading movie this Thursday at 6

Posted on: June 8, 2013

 James is a young English boy who loses his beloved parents, but not before they teach him to follow his dreams and find beauty in everything from clouds in the sky to spiders in the dirt.

He needs this to keep his sanity, especially since he now lives with two horrendous aunts.

The Murphy Library is celebrating its Summer Reading Program with James and the Giant Peach, an animated adventure film based on the book by Raold Dahl, that includes crawling and flying bugs, perfect for children, parents and local entomologists. The screening is Thursday, June 13 at 6 p.m.  Running time is 79 minutes and the film is rated PG.


One day James saves the life of a spider, whose sultry voice by Susan Sarandon is not to be missed.  His reward:  boiled crocodiles’ tongues full of magic.  He trips, a large fruit grows, and a centipede, grasshopper, ladybug come to his aid. Now the question is “how to get to New York City.”  Call 837-2417 for details.
