Movie poster of 2019 film Dora and the Lost City of Gold

One of the most popular Nickelodeon animated heroines grows up in this 2019 live action adaptation. Come early at 5:00pm to make a craft young explorers will enjoy!

“A teen moves from the jungle to High School but soon begins an adventure for the lost city of gold along with a motley crew of characters.”

Directed by James Bobin, this 102-minute film stars Isabela Moner, Jeffrey Wahlberg, Eugenio Derbez, Nicholas Coombe, and Eva Longoria.

This film is rated PG “for action and some impolite humor,” but young children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
