I remember watching a VHS of a run down dinner/apartment building that a big corporation was trying to close down, where small alien flying saucers/robots came to live, and have their little robots. The big corporation paid somebody to burn the building down because the people would not move out. The robots ended up rebuilding the diner/apartments over night after the fire. It was a great family movie, although I am not sure if it qualifies as a classic.
