April 21st: Marcel the Shell With Shoes On

The 2023 PROXY Spring Series of outdoor cinema continues on Friday, April 21st at 7:00PM- 10:00PM at the PROXY Community Walk-in Theater with:

Marcel the Shell With Shoes On

Directed by Dean Fleischer Camp, 2021 [PG]


It’s a quirky stop-motion animation, developed from a series of online short films, whose comedy frequency takes a little time to tune into.– Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian 


Marcel is an adorable one-inch-tall shell who ekes out a colorful existence with his grandmother Connie and their pet lint, Alan. Once part of a sprawling community of shells, they now live alone as the sole survivors of a mysterious tragedy.  When a documentary filmmaker discovers them amongst the clutter of his Airbnb, the short film he posts online brings Marcel millions of passionate fans, as well as unprecedented dangers and a new hope of reuniting with his long-lost family.





Presented by HERE FOR NOW, these FREE evening film screenings at the PROXY Walk-In Theater begin at 7:45PM with ‘doors’ opening at 7PM.
