Author Roald Dahl was best known for his darkly comic novels for children. Dahl did not trust adults or any form of sentimentality, and never condescended to his young readers. In celebration of the 100th anniversary of his birth, we present these six delightfully malevolent adaptations of his most famous books (plus the weirdest-ever James Bond film, for which he wrote the screenplay).

Special pricing: All Roald Dahl weekend matinees are just $5 for all seats!
