Join us for a special film screening! Calvin & Hobbes dominated the Sunday comics in thousands of newspapers for over 10 years, having a profound effect on millions of readers across the globe.  When the strip’s creator, Bill Watterson, retired the strip on New Year’s Eve in 1995, devoted readers everywhere felt the void left by its departure. This documentary explores why his 'simple' comic strip made such an impact on so many readers in the 80s and 90s, and why it still means so much to us today.
