The Wonderworks library includes Ron Howard’s “The Lone Star Kid,” starring James Earl Jones; “Jacob Have I Loved,” toplining Bridget Fonda; “Frog,” featuring Paul Williams, Elliott Gould and Shelley Duvall; and “The Mighty Pawns,” with Paul Winfield.

The two animated pics in the library are “Molly and the Skywalkerz in Happily Ever After” and “Molly and the Skywalkerz in Two Daddies,” both featuring the voices of Carol Burnett and Danny DeVito and produced by Henry Winkler.
