Live On The Lawn: Family Movie Night: Wed., Aug. 16th

Join us for Outdoor Movie Night at the Malden Public Library on Wednesday, August 16, 2017 at 7:45pm for part of our “Live On The Lawn” series.  We will be showing a recent animated Disney film about a girl named Moana, the strong-willed daughter of a Polynesian chief, who bails on being a princess and sets sail on the ocean to save her family and her island.  Inspired by Polynesian stories and mythology, the movie features the voice of Dwayne Johnson and a soundtrack by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

The New York Times writes, “Moana is an inspiring heroine, a smart, brave and decent young woman….”  Rotten Tomatoes gives the movie a 96% approval rating and Roger Ebert’s website describes the film as having “dazzling visuals, catchy tunes, enjoyable performances, cleaver running gags and overall sense of fun.”

Join us on the front lawn for this fun, family-friendly, and crowd-pleasing summer film.  Free popcorn will be provided.  Thank you to our sponsors:  Eastern Bank Charitable Fund and The Friends of the Malden Public Library.

This film is free and open to the public.  Movie times are approximate.  Please call the Malden Public Library at 781-324-0218 for more information.  Rated PG (107 min.)
