Established in 1972, Aardman Animation vaulted to international affection with the release of A Grand Day Out (1989), the first of Nick Park’s stop-motion films depicting the outsized adventures of stodgy inventor/cheese enthusiast Wallace and his faithful and intellectually superior canine companion Gromit. In addition to Grand Day, this delightful program presents a complete overview of Park’s beloved Wallace and Gromit shorts, including The Wrong Trousers (1993), A Close Shave (1995), and A Matter of Loaf and Death (2008).
