Paris, 1910. Panic sweeps the city as floodwaters rise and a monster is on the loose in this musical animated adventure set in the City of Lights, from the director of Shark Tale!

A Monster in Paris is clever, quite funny and beautifully animated.” – Roz Laws, Birmingham Post

In A Monster in Paris, loosely based on the classic tale, Phantom of the Opera, a wacky inventor named Raoul and his camera-crazy best friend Emile accidentally transform a common house flea into a 7-foot-tall monster with a marvelous singing voice named Franc.  With the help of feisty cabaret singer Lucille, the creature develops a following as a popular nightclub singer.   But the dastardly local police commissioner has a plan to capture Franc and convince the public that he’s nothing more than a monstrous danger to the people of Paris, leading out trio of heroes (along with a madcap monkey) to cook up a plan to save Franc and allow his sweet voice to keep ringing out.    Featuring spectacular animation and music, nods to such classic films as King Kong and Frankenstein, and the voice talents of Vanessa Paradis, Sean Lennon, Danny Huston and Catherine O’Hara. (Dir. by Bibo Bergeron, 2011, France, in English, 90 mins., Rated PG)
