Family Movie on the Lawn: Zootopia!

On Tuesday, August 15th*, families and people of all ages are invited to a free screening of Zootopia on the lawn at the Central Library!  Bring blankets and/or lawn chairs, a picnic dinner or some snacks, and join us for fun and games on the lawn!  The movie will start as soon as it gets dark enough.

Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it's a melting pot where animals from every environment live together. But when optimistic Officer Judy Hopps arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn't so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde. This film is rated PG.

This event is sponsored by the Children's and Teen Departments of the Somerville Public Library in collaboration with Teen Empowerment.  We hope you can come!
