Due to conditions of the grass in Gold Medal Park, tonight's outdoor screening of The Triplets of Belleville has been canceled. We apologize for the inconvenience -- please stay tuned for announcements regarding the Film Society's 2017 Movies in the Park lineup.

Join us September 19 at dusk for our third summer 2016 presentation at Gold Medal Park, featuring a screening of Sylvain Chomet's multi-award winning animated gem.

Note: Due to the limited viewing area and steep inclines on the hill, no chairs will be permitted at the screening. Also, in accordance with Minneapolis city ordinance, no alcohol will be allowed at all Gold Medal Park screenings. In the case of rain or extreme wind (gusts of 20 mph or more), this screening will be cancelled and notification will be posted on The Film Society's Facebook and Twitter pages.

Adopted by his grandmother, Madame Souza, Champion is a lonely little boy.

Noticing that the lad is never happier than on a bicycle, Madame Souza puts him through a rigorous training process. Years go by and Champion becomes worthy of his name. Now he is ready to enter the world-famous cycling race, the Tour de France.

However during this cycling contest two mysterious men in black kidnap Champion. Madame Souza and her faithful dog Bruno set out to rescue him.

Their quest takes them across the ocean to a giant megalopolis called Belleville where they encounter the renowned "Triplets of Belleville," three eccentric female music-hall stars from the ‘30s who decide to take Madame Souza and Bruno under their wing.

Thanks to Bruno's brilliant sense of smell, the brave duo are soon on to Champion's trail. But will they succeed in beating the devilish plans of the evil French mafia?
