The club's members try their hardest to break the two apart, eventually causing their beloved clubhouse to burn down.

Imagine a group of kids from the 1930s somehow inhabiting a modern city. This movie made me and my kids so happy that we went back to see it again the next day and bought the video when it came out. Its theatrical run didn't last very long, so most people never saw it. Give it a try, especially if you're a kid or have kids of your own.
