Back Event Jan 5, 2017 @ 5 pm

By turns bizarre, childlike, surreal, and always creative, “The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T” has developed a well-earned cult following due to its originality and darkly charming sensibility.

With a screenplay and lyrics written by Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss), this musical fantasy includes incredible dream-like sets and infectious songs. A treat for adults and children alike, see the imagination of Dr. Seuss brought to life on screen in vibrant color. “The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T” will be presented by Matías Bombal, movie critic and film historian of “Matías Bombal’s Hollywood.”

Space is limited, and advance registration is recommended. Tickets may be purchased online or at the Museum admission desk.
