Edgar Rice Burroughs’ famous story of the boy raised by apes gets the Disney treatment when Tarzan is shown at Missouri University of Science and Technology. The film is part of the Leach Theatre Family Series.
Screening of the film will begin at 11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 8, in Leach Theatre of Missouri S&T’s Castleman Hall, 10th and Main streets in Rolla, Mo. Admission is $2 per person. Tickets will be available at the Leach Theatre Box Office beginning at 10 a.m. that day.
It is not until Tarzan meets the beautiful Jane Porter that he discovers he’s a man, not an ape. When these worlds collide, Tarzan is forced to choose between a “civilized” life with Jane and the life he knows and loves with his gorilla family. The film is rated G.
