“Coraline” boasts stunning stop-motion animation, handcrafted puppets, and meticulously-designed sets—freshly re-colored and remastered for 2023. Based on the novel by beloved author Neil Gaiman, “Coraline” is a wondrous, thrilling, fun and suspenseful adventure. A young girl walks through a secret door in her new home and discovers an alternate version of her life. On the surface, this parallel reality is eerily similar to her real life – only much better. But when this wondrously off-kilter, fantastical adventure turns dangerous and her counterfeit parents try to keep her forever, Coraline must count on her resourcefulness, determination, and bravery to save her family and get back home.
Written and directed by stop-motion auteur Henry Selick (The Nightmare Before Christmas, James and the Giant Peach), “Coraline” stars Dakota Fanning, Ian McShane, Teri Hatcher, Keith David, and British comedy duo Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders, with animation by the award-winning studio, LAIKA (ParaNorman, The Boxtrolls).
Tickets for CORALINE are on sale NOW and can be purchased at www.FathomEvents.com or participating theater box offices. For a complete list of theater locations, visit the Fathom Events website (participating theaters are subject to change).
