I don’t get it.

Arnie, Stuart, and Jakob are taking April Patrons back to their childhood as they revisit Big – the ultimate coming-of-age comedy. Tom Hanks earned his first Oscar nomination playing a pint-sized 12-year-old boy, who makes a careless wish on a carnival fortune-telling machine, and wakes up in the body of a 30-year-old man. Does Penny Marshall’s fable still play for a grown up audience? And how has parenting changed in the decades since this classic opened?  A small contribution is all that’s required to become a Now Playing Patron and Find Out!

Overview
When a young boy makes a wish at a carnival machine to be big—he wakes up the following morning to find that it has been granted and his body has grown older overnight.
