Pixar Hosts Pre-screening of The Good Dinosaur to Benefit BayKids

It was a magical evening at Pixar Animation Studios – great food and wine, a tour of Pixar,and an advance viewing of the spectacularly beautiful The Good Dinosaur. After the screening, the audience was treated to an inside look at the making of the film in a Q&A with some of the filmmakers.

Thanks to all the superheroes who helped make it a success–Filmmakers Rej Bourdages and Kevin O’Hara, youth filmmaker Mailyna, our MC Hooman Khalili, and most especially, Pixar Studios.
