From visionary director Tim Burton, and based upon the best-selling novel, comes an unforgettable motion picture experience. When Jake discovers clues to a mystery that spans alternate realities and times, he uncovers a secret refuge known as Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jake learns about the residents and their unusual abilities, he realizes that safety is an illusion, and danger lurks in the form of powerful, hidden enemies. Jake must figure out what is real, who can be trusted, and who he really is. MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN is rich with fantastical and immersive imagery, memorable characters, epic battles, and unique time travel manipulations—all brought to life by Tim Burton, in the grand style of his films Edward Scissorhands, Alice in Wonderland, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Most significantly, it is about embracing the original and peculiar in us all.

Ever since their cover of “Home” by Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros went viral in 2010, the Narvaez family’s life has not been the same. This simple family from San Diego said goodbye to their normal life as Jorge and Alexa auditioned for America’s Got Talent, performed everywhere from “The Ellen Degeneres Show” to China, and showed the world the importance of family. Their original heart-warming rendition of the song has received over 30 million views on YouTube, and continues to be one of the world’s favorite videos. Today, the Narvaez family invites you to join them as they share their love of music, community, Hispanic culture and art with the world.
About A Place Called Home:
A Place Called Home is a safe haven in South Central Los Angeles where underserved youth are empowered to take ownership of the quality and direction of their lives through programs in education, arts and well-being and are inspired to make a meaningful difference in their community and the world. The organization was founded in 1993 when real estate professional Debrah Constance dedicated herself to providing gang-affected youth in South Central Los Angeles with a safe place after school to get a snack, do homework, play with friends, and be with caring adults. On the first day of the agency’s existence 12 kids showed up to the basement of a church. Three years later, 400 children and youth were regular members of APCH and we moved to our present location on South Central Avenue; the Center now has 25,000 square feet of space and includes an athletic field, commercial kitchen, garden and dance studio. APCH currently serves an average of 900 unduplicated members per year.
