A LION IN THE HOUSE

United States | 2006 | Julia Reichert, Steven Bognar

A LION IN THE HOUSE film still

This epic, Emmy-winning TV documentary relates the stories of five children and their families at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital as they battle pediatric cancer. From the trauma of diagnosis to the physical toll of treatment, the film (which was shot over six years) documents the stresses that can tear a family apart, as well as the courage of children facing the possibility of death with honesty, dignity, and humor. Shot over six years, the movie puts viewers in the shoes of parents, relatives, caregivers, and social workers who struggle to defeat an indiscriminate, predatory disease. DCP. 225 min.

Special event pricing $11; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $8. No passes, twofers, or radio winners.
