Thursday, May 16 from 3:30-5:00PM
The library shows feature films for children K-5th grades on the third Thursday of every month. Kids can hang with their friends, have some popcorn and watch a movie free of charge in the library meeting room. Children are welcome to bring a water bottle to the movie to wash down the popcorn.
Children are expected to use good manners while the movie is being shown. Parents are asked to come to the meeting room to pick up their child after the movie is over. Please remember: kids must be registered—and if coming directly from Northridge, a note stating they are coming to the Alexandria Public Library needs to be sent to school with your child on Thursday, May 16. Please call 924.3561, email email@example.com or stop by the library to sign up your child by WEDNESDAY, MAY 15, as our attendance for movie day is growing and space is limited.
It’s Paris 1910. Emile and Raoul find themselves embarked on the hunt for a monster terrorizing citizens. They join forces with Lucille, the big-hearted star of the Rare Bird cabaret, and an eccentric scientist and his quick tempered monkey to save the monster from the city’s ruthlessly ambitious police chief.
