Exclusive 50th Anniversary Theatrical Re-Release of the Peanuts® Classic!
CineLife Entertainment® has partnered with CBS to be the exclusive North American theatrical distributor of the digitally remastered Peanuts® classic, A Boy Named Charlie Brown. This is the 50th Anniversary of this animated feature film and first time it will be presented in the theatre since its release in 1969.
In this first animated feature film based on Charles M. Schulz’s ever-popular Peanuts® comic strip, we see the pint-sized hero step up to the challenge, face his fears and show the world what he is truly made of. When Charlie Brown enters the school spelling bee, the doubtful and openly honest Lucy predicts his abject humiliation. But with the help of his best friend Linus and loyal dog Snoopy, Charlie Brown sets out to surprise his detractors in order to attend the national spelling bee in New York City.
Nominated for an Oscar® in 1971 for “Best Original Music/Song Score” by Vince Guaraldi, A Boy Named Charlie Brown projects the innocence of Schulz’s charming characters with glee and takes them on a most spectacular adventure.
