Twenty-thousand years ago, Earth is a wondrous, prehistoric world filled with great danger, not the least of which is the beginning of the Ice Age. To avoid a really bad frostbite, the planet’s majestic creatures – and a few small, slothful ones – begin migrating south. The story revolves around sub-zero heroes: a woolly mammoth, a saber-toothed tiger, a sloth and a prehistoric combination of a squirrel and rat that is known as Scrat.

Roger Ebert was won over . . . “Peter Ackerman’s screenplay is sly and literate, and director Chris Wedge’s visual style so distinctive and appealing that the movie seduced me.”

Rated PG. Running time: 1 hour, 21 minutes.

Next movie will be ‘Strange World’ on September 1st.

Free, 8pm to 9:30pm, First Friday Free Films, Friday, August 4, Dalrymple Boathouse, RWP, 1000 Elmwood Avenue, (directions)
