Saturday Afternoon Family Film: The Parent Trap

Join us at the Central Library this Saturday at 2:00 p.m. for August's family film, The Parent Trap. says, “Hayley Mills is the two-fer star of this original version of the 1961 Disney comedy. The young actress plays twin sisters originally unaware of each others' existence and who later determine to bring their divorced parents together again by secretly trading places. Brian Keith and Maureen O'Hara bring some adult legitimacy to their roles as the wary parents, Joanna Barnes is a good sport as dad's new and despised girlfriend, and director David Swift makes the whole production sprightly, warm, and fun.”

We'll provide the popcorn, and before the feature we'll show a cartoon, just like in the old days. This time it's Toot, Whistle, Plunk and Boom, which won the 1954 Academy Award for Best Short Subject (Cartoons) and was also voted #29 of the 50 Greatest Cartoons of all time by animation professionals.

This free film series is sponsored by the Friends of the Library. All are welcome to attend.
