80's/90's Movie Night: Size Doesn't Matter!

This Saturday, let's watch some 80s classics featuring pint-size heroes!  Who remembers these great movies?

Little Monsters - Fred Savage, Ben Savage, Howie Mandel. A child meets the monster that lives under his bed. He even becomes one of his best friends. Soon the child discovers a whole new world of fun and games under his bed where pulling pranks on kids and other monsters is the main attraction. (if that sounds a lot like a certain Pixar movie, it probably should!)

Explorers - Ethan Hawke, River Phoenix - Ben Crandall, an alien-obsessed kid, dreams one night of a circuit board. Drawing out the circuit, he and his friends Wolfgang and Darren set it up, and discover they have been given the basis for a starship.

Spaced Invaders - Ariana Richards (Jurassic Park), Dimwitted Martians drop into a little Illinois town on the day that the local radio station happens to rebroadcast Orson Welles 1938 "War Of The Worlds".

    I had hoped to come to this one, but unexpectedly saw a movie instead. Sorry for not removing my RSVP in time.

    I'm not 100% sure I'll be coming because I have plans earlier in the evening, but I'll likely be dropping by when the second movie starts. I'm bummed I'll miss little monsters - I have fond memories of it from my childhood.

    Some good (and bad good) movies there. Time Bandits is another great movie from the time that fits the theme quite well (although is a fair bit more surreal). I can bring along the DVD if there's any interest in it.

      I figured it was a mistake. Better be dang good pizza for $20 a pop! :)

      If it's real Chicago deep-dish pizza (that's not from a place like Uno's), I'd be willing to pay that amount. ;)
