The schedule is as follows:
Saturday, May 16th
(3:00PM -5:00PM ET/PT) ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS
“Alvin and the Chipmunks,” a global phenomenon to generations of fans, becomes a live-action/CGI-motion picture event with a contemporary comic sensibility. Songwriter Dave Seville (Jason Lee) transforms singing chipmunks Alvin (Justin Long), Simon (Matthew Gray Gubler) and Theodore (Jesse McCartney) into pop sensations — while the out-of-control trio lays waste to Dave’s home, wreaks havoc on his career, and turns Dave’s once-orderly life upside-down. “Alvin and the Chipmunks” repeats on Sunday, May 17th at 1:00PM ET/PT.
(5:00PM -7:00PM ET/PT) 101 DALMATIANS
Making its ABC Family premiere, this Walt Disney's original classic movie has charmed audiences for generations with its irresistible tail-wagging stars, memorable story and wonderful blend of humor and adventure. Cruella De Vil (Betty Lou Gerson) sets the fur-raising adventure in motion when she dognaps all of the Dalmatian puppies in London, including 15 from Pongo (Rod Taylor) and Perdita’s (Cate Bauer) family. Through the power of the "Twilight Bark," Pongo leads a heroic cast of animal characters on a dramatic quest to rescue them all in a story the whole family will enjoy again and again. “101 Dalmatians” repeats on Sunday, May 17th at 3:00PM ET/PT.
(7:00PM–9:30PM ET/PT) RATATOUILLE
Remy (Patton Oswalt) dreams of becoming a great a French chef despite his family’s wishes and the obvious problem that Remy is, well, a rat in a decidedly rodent-phobic profession. When Fate places Remy in the sewers of Paris, he finds himself ideally situated beneath the same restaurant named famous by his culinary hero, Auguste Gusteau (Brad Garrett). Despite the apparent dangers of being an unlikely, and certainly unwanted, visitor in the kitchen of a fine French restaurant, Remy’s passion for cooking soon sets into motion a hilarious and exciting rat race that turns the culinary world of Paris upside down. Remy finds himself torn between his calling and passion in live or returning forever to his previous existence as a rat. Along the way he learns the truth about friendship, family and having no choice but to be who he really is – a rat who wants to be a chef. “Ratatouille” repeats on Sunday, May 17th at 5:00PM ET/PT
(9:30PM-12:00AM ET/PT) FINDING NEMO
Nemo (Alexander Gould), an adventurous young clownfish, is unexpectedly taken from his Great Barrier Reef home to a dentist's office aquarium. It's up to his worrisome father, Marlin (Albert Brooks), and his friendly but forgetful regal blue tang fish Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) to bring Nemo home -- meeting vegetarian sharks, surfer dude turtles, hypnotic jellyfish, hungry seagulls, and more along the way. “Finding Nemo” repeats on Sunday, May 17th at 7:30pm ET/PT.
(12AM – 2AM ET/PT) WALL•E
Set in a galaxy not so very far away, after hundreds of lonely years doing what he was built for, WALL•E (Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) discovers a new purpose in life, besides collecting knickknacks, when he meets a sleek search robot named EVE (Extra-terrestrial Vegetation Evaluator). EVE comes to realize that WALL•E has inadvertently stumbled upon the key to the planet’s future and races back to space to report her findings to the humans who have been eagerly waiting aboard the luxury spaceship Axiom for news that it is safe to return home. Meanwhile, WALL•E chases EVE across the galaxy and sets into motion one of the most incredible comedy adventures ever brought to the big screen. “WALL•E” repeats on Sunday, May 17th at 10:00pm ET/PT.
