"Hugo"
March 7th, 2012
Office: Cultural/Art Event
Time: 7:30 pm
Location: Caregie Building - 451 E. Mitchell St.

The Petoskey Film Theater will be showing the Academy Award winning film "Hugo" on Wednesday, March 7, 7:30 pm at the Petoskey District Library, Carnegie Building (old library, 451 E. Mitchell St.). Donations are appreciated. "Hugo" won 5 Academy Awards, including Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction and Best Visual Effects. "Hugo" also won a Golden Globe Award for Best Director (Martin Scorsese).

"Hugo" is an extravagant, elegant fantasy with an innocence lacking in many modern kids' movies, and one that emanates an unabashed love for the magic of cinema. Set in 1930s Paris, an orphan who lives in the walls of a train station is wrapped up in a mystery involving his late father and an automaton.

In resourceful orphan Hugo Cabret, Martin Scorsese finds the perfect vessel for his silver-screen passion: this is a movie about movies. After his clockmaker father perishes in a museum fire, Hugo goes to live with his Uncle Claude, a drunkard who maintains the clocks at a Paris train station. When Claude disappears, Hugo carries on his work and fends for himself by stealing food from area merchants. In his free time, he attempts to repair an automaton his father rescued from the museum, while trying to evade the station inspector, a World War I veteran with no sympathy for lawbreakers. When Georges, a toymaker, catches Hugo stealing parts for his mechanical man, he recruits him as an assistant to repay his debt. If Georges is guarded, his open-hearted ward, Isabelle, introduces Hugo to a kindly bookseller, who directs them to a motion-picture museum, where they meet film scholar René. In helping unlock the secret of the automaton, they learn about the roots of cinema, starting with the Lumière brothers, and give a forgotten movie pioneer his due, thus illustrating the importance of film preservation, a cause to which the director has dedicated his life.
