POINT PLEASANT — Point Pleasant Primary School is the latest in the community to offer a free, outdoor screening of a family-friendly film.
The school will show Disney’s “Moana” at dark this Thursday, July 13 on the school’s playground. Attendees are asked to bring their blankets and snacks by 8:30 p.m. and dress with a Hawaiian theme in mind
Principal Vickie Workman said the movie will unofficially kick off the upcoming school year while also celebrating the summer. The movie is for PPPS students, their families and anyone in the community who would like to attend and share a summer evening together.
In addition to the free flick, immediately prior to the start of the movie, Cindy Williams with the Mason County Library will share with the audience free events going on at the library which students can take advantage of this summer.
“If it is a success, we would love to show another movie before school starts and then monthly in the fall,” Workman said.
The movie is about Moana, a girl in the Pacific who leaves her island home to save her people. The film opened in theaters only last November and is a relatively new release from Disney.
Recently, a movie night was held in Tu-Endie-Wei State Park and was hosted by the City of Point Pleasant Parks and Recreation Committee and volunteers. Hundreds of people showed up for that event. Workman is also hoping for a good turnout this Thursday for a night of family-friendly fun that allows returning students to connect with friends, new students to learn about PPPS and the community to connect with their neighbors.
