Monkey Business

December 27, 2018

Catch a showing of the movie “Monkey Business” on Friday, Dec. 28, starting at 6 p.m. at the Curious George Cottage (Noon Peak Road, Waterville Valley). 

The documentary movie chronicles the lives of Margret and Hans Rey, creators of Curious George.  There is some mature content and the film may not be appropriate for younger viewers. 

Popcorn and refreshments will be served. Admission is open to all and donations will be gratefully accepted.

Did you know that in 1940 Hans and Margret fled Paris ahead of the Nazi occupation on self-made bicycles? They carried the Curious George manuscript with them.  The Reys  subsequently took up residence in the US, including a home right here in Waterville Valley in what is now called the Curious George Cottage!
