Exclusive North American Theatrical Return of the Peanuts® Classic
CineLife Entertainment® has partnered with CBS to be the exclusive North American theatrical distributor of the digitally remastered Peanuts® classic, Snoopy, Come Home. This is the first time this film will be presented in the theatre since its release in 1972.
In this follow up to 1969’s A Boy Named Charlie Brown, the scholarly Snoopy finds himself dragged between two owners and challenged to remain true to himself. When Charlie Brown’s beloved dog Snoopy receives a letter from his original owner Lila, who is in hospital, his heartstrings are torn. Along with his bird pal Woodstock, Snoopy decides to venture out and visit ailing Lila, making his way across the country. But when Lila gets better and asks Snoopy to live with her, the poor beagle faces a dilemma of loyalty, where he must choose between Charlie and Lila.
Written by Schulz, with a much admired score by Oscar® winners Richard and RobertSherman (”Best Original Song” and “Best Original Music Score,” Mary Poppins, 1964) and featuring the on-screen debut Woodstock, Snoopy, Come Home is a fun-loving animated adventure for the whole family.
