20 years ago today, “Jumanji” had its theatrical release. Though the film had lukewarm reaction from critics, it was a box office success and has remained a favorite among family adventure movies. The film is based on Chris Van Allsburg’s children’s book about a game that’s “a young people's jungle adventure especially designed for the bored and restless.” It’s at once terrifying (those monkeys!) and funny (plenty of laughs supplied by the late Robin Williams) and touching (the relief and joy in Williams’ face when he realizes this nightmare of a game is finally over). A remake is in the works and set for a Christmas 2016 release. Other notable December 15 happenings in pop culture history: • 1939: “Gone With the Wind” premiered at Loew’s Grand Theater in Atlanta, the climax of three days of festivities in the Georgia city to celebrate the film’s debut. • 1966: Walt Disney died in Burbank, »
