Movie on the Lawn season concludes with a big movie about being tiny
Topeka, Kan. – Children of the 1980’s, rejoice! The classic and beloved family film, “Honey I Shrunk the Kids,” will be on the big screen at this weekend’s Movie on the Lawn, 8 p.m. Sat. Sept. 27 in the Statehouse’s north parking lot. Families who attend will need to bring their own chairs or several layers of blankets to relax and watch the hilarity and the adventure ensue.

“Honey I Shrunk the Kids” (PG, 1989, 93 minutes) is an animated film starring Rick Moranis, a shrink ray inventor whose children accidentally shrink themselves to the size of insects and wind up on a harrowing adventure to return to life size while their dad goes on a micro-search for his missing children.

Sponsors include seveneightfive magazine, Westar, Subway, Downtown Topeka, Inc. and the Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library, which has been a partner of Movie on the Lawn since its inception.

The series has been hugely popular, with over 100 people attending each of the three film showings this year downtown.

“Honey I Shrunk the Kids” is the final film of the 2014 Movies on the Lawn series.
