TAKE THE KIDS:




Mouse Movie


For kids of all ages, Rolan Hall is showing the mad-cap comedy "Mouse Hunt," a 1997 family film about a mouse living in an old house whose owner has gone to his reward. Two would-be inheritors find their plans for the house hit a snag when they have big trouble trapping the clever mouse.
