showtimes and tickets

Calvin & Hobbes dominated the comics in thousands of newspapers for ten years, having a profound effect on millions of readers across the globe. When the stripís creator, Bill Watterson, retired the strip on New Yearís Eve in 1995, devoted readers everywhere felt the void left by the departure of Calvin, Hobbes, and Wattersonís other cast of characters, and many fans would never find a satisfactory replacement.

It has now been 17 years since the end of the Calvin & Hobbes era. Bill Watterson has kept an extremely low profile during this time, living a very private life in Ohio. Despite his quiet lifestyle, Mr. Watterson is remembered and appreciated daily by fans who still enjoy his amazing collection of work.

Mr. Watterson has inspired and influenced millions of people through Calvin & Hobbes. Newspaper readership and book sales can be tracked and recorded, but the human impact he has had and the value and significance of his art are perhaps impossible to measure.

This film is not a quest to find Bill Watterson, or to invade his privacy. It is an exploration to discover 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.
