In a mystical land of witches and wizards, the demonic Red Bull has imprisoned all the unicorns—well, all except one. Determined to save her captive brothers and sisters, the last unicorn leaves the safety of her enchanted forest and, accompanied by a well-meaning but novice magician, embarks on an adventure that has enthralled audiences for over 30 years.

As the voice of the last unicorn, Mia Farrow leads an amazing cast that includes Jeff Bridges, Christopher Lee, Angela Lansbury, Alan Arkin and Robert Klein. Directed by animation legends Arthur Rankin Jr. and Jules Bass, the film is gorgeously animated by Topcraft, a Japanese anime company that would eventually transform into Hayao Miyazaki’s Studio Ghibli.

Digitally restored and back on the big screen where it was meant to be seen, The Last Unicorn will be introduced in-person by legendary Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author and screenwriter Peter S. Beagle, who based his screenplay on his own 1968 novel. Beagle, who began writing the fantasy classic here in the Berkshires, will answer questions, meet fans and sign books and posters. “When I began work on this story, just over 50 years ago, I never imaged it would go on to reach so many people or affect them so deeply. I love getting to share my characters in person with others who care about them as much as I do.”

  • Director: Jules Bass, Arthur Rankin Jr.
  • Rating: G
  • Runtime: 1 hour 32 minutes
  • Genre: Animation

The Last Unicorn is an unusual children's film in many respects, the chief one being that it is unusually good. This animated fable also features a cast that would do any live-action film proud, a visual style noticeably different from that of other children's fare, and a story filled with genuine sweetness and mystery.”

– Janet Maslin, The New York Times
