Teen Movie Night
Apr 15 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Join us at our new monthly Teen Film Night! This month’s film will be “INKHEART” based on the best selling book by Cornelia Funke. If you read this book and loved it, or even if you haven’t read it come join us anyway. If you are age 11yrs or up this program if for you.

“Author Cornelia Funke‘s best-selling children’s novel comes to vivid life on the big screen with this family-friendly tale about a bookbinder whose storytelling skills possess the curious power to transport the characters he speaks about into the real world. When a nefarious villain from a bedtime story that the father is currently reading to his daughter emerges to kidnap the stunned storyteller, it’s up to the young girl and her adventurous friends — both real and imaginary — to bring dad back home and close the book on the dreaded fiend once and for all.” ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi (
