THE WRONG TROUSERS chronicles the mishaps that ensue when Wallace takes in a shifty penguin as a lodger. A CLOSE SHAVE uncovers how Wallace and Gromit unravel a countrywide sheep-rustling ring. The films will screen April 19 - May 20, 2001 at 1:00 pm, with a suggested donation of $6 for adults, $4 for students and seniors and $3 for children ages 13 and under.
