Little Theatre 1 (240 East Ave.)

From director Henry Selick (The Nightmare Before Christmas) comes this dark-fantasy stop-motion animated film, the first feature from Laika (Paranorman, Kubo and the Two Strings), based on the book by Neil Gaiman (Sandman, Stardust).

While exploring her new home, a girl named Coraline (Dakota Fanning) discovers a secret door, behind which lies an alternate world that closely mirrors her own but, in many ways, is better. She rejoices in her discovery, until Other Mother (Teri Hatcher) and the rest of her parallel family try to keep her there forever. Coraline must use all her resources and bravery to make it back to her own family and life.
