Flicks in the Sticks – CANCELLED for Aug 3

CANCELLED Unfortunately, today’s rain has turned the Nature Center lawn quite soggy and the additional chance of rain warrants cancellation of tonight’s show. We’re disappointed that we will have to cancel our presentation of Brave. Please come out on August 17 for our next movie, The Avengers.

Brave - Movie PosterIt’s our 9th season and Flicks is presenting another night of family entertainment. Come join us for the showing of Brave at approximately 8:30PM on the Nature Center lawn. Bring a picnic dinner – or pick up something from one of the great local restaurants – and stake out your spot on the lawn. Coolers, lawn chairs, and picnic blankets are welcome. Free popcorn and drinks are provided. This is a popular event, so come early for a good seat!

One lucky person will take home the DVD of tonight’s movie in a random drawing from all attendees. Tickets for the drawing are distributed before the movie starts. Drawing will be held immediately after the movie and winner must be present.

Here’s a short synopsis of tonight’s movie:

Determined to make her own path in life, Princess Merida defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom. Granted one wish, Merida must rely on her bravery and her archery skills to undo a beastly curse. PG, 93 mins. [Parental Guidance]
