Join us Sunday April 6th at 2:00 PM for a showing of the family Disney film Frozen.

Loosely based on the Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale ‘The Snow Queen,’ the film centers on Anna (voiced by Kristin Bell) and Elsa (voiced by Idina Menzel), sister princesses of Arendelle. When Elsa accidentally unleashes an eternal winter upon Arendelle after an emotional outburst at her coronation, she flees the kingdom and Anna sets off to search for her in order to save their homeland and mend their relationship.

It is free of charge and in our Community Room

Join us Sunday, March 9th for a free showing of the thriller Gravity at 2:00 PM in the Community Room.

Director Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity stars Sandra Bullock as Dr. Ryan Stone, a scientist on a space shuttle mission headed by astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney), a talkative, charismatic leader full of colorful stories that he shares with his crewmates as well as mission control. As the two are on a space walk, debris hits the area where they are working, and soon the pair finds themselves detached from their ship and stranded in space. While figuring out what steps they can take to save themselves, Stone grapples with a painful past that makes her consider giving up altogether.
