One Saturday night a month, we’ll be showing fun and family-friendly films to enjoy together. We kick off our family movie series this Saturday, May 18th, at 7 p.m. with a screening of The Secret World of Arietty.
“In a secret world hidden beneath the floorboards, little people called Borrowers live quietly among us. But when tenacious and tiny Arrietty is discovered by Shawn, a human boy, their secret and forbidden friendship blossoms into an extraordinary adventure.”
The Secret World of Arietty is based on the fantastical children’s book The Borrowers, by Mary Norton. This reinterpreted classic has gotten great reviews! Arietty is written by Hayao Miyazaki, who created such gems as Spirited Away and My Neighbor Totoro. It’s the perfect family film: the imaginative mix of enchanting music and lush animation tell this magical story for viewers 5 and older. There is just enough suspense to keep the audience captivated. The movie has been praised for its sensitivity, beauty, and charming portrayal of friendship and loyalty. Come get swept into the magical world of Arietty and her family this Saturday!
