Free Outdoor Family Films
The Rehoboth Beach Film Society's final two free outdoor screenings will be Wednesday, August 15 at Lewes Canalfront Park and Thursday, August 16 at the Rehoboth Beach Bandstand.
Big Miracle will be shown August 15 in Lewes.
Inspired by the true story that captured the hearts of people across the world, this rescue adventure tells the amazing tale of how a small-town news reporter (John Krasinski of TV’s “The Office”) and an animal-loving volunteer (Drew Barrymore) rally an unlikely coalition of Inuit natives, oil companies, as well as the Russian and American militaries to save a family of majestic gray whales trapped by rapidly forming ice in the Arctic Circle. Ted Danson co-stars as the rich oilman coerced into helping the whales with Kristen Bell as a prickly anchorwoman reluctantly covering the rescue. The New York Daily News recommends “Big Miracle” as “a whale of a good time for all.” [2012, USA, Runtime: 106 min, Rated PG]
Happy Feet Two will screen August 16 in Rehoboth.
The animated comedy sequel to the Academy Award-winning smash hit Happy Feet returns audiences to the magnificent landscape of Antarctica. The world’s most famous tap-dancing penguin, Mumble, and the love of his life Gloria, now have a son of their own, Erik. Erik is reluctant to dance and struggles to find his own talent in the Emperor Penguin world. Things get much worse as the world is shaken by powerful forces which are threatening the penguin nation. Erik learns of his father’s courage and leadership as Mumble brings together the penguin nations and their allies in an attempt to put things right. The musical hit once again features the voices of Elijah Wood (Mumble) and pop star Pink (Gloria) along with Robin Williams in a dual role, and Brad Pitt and Matt Damon as the hilariously scheming Krill brothers. Kidzworld.com calls Happy Feet 2 “a fun musical romp with a great environmental message and amazing animation featuring some of the animal kingdom’s most lovable arctic fowl.” [2011, USA, Runtime: 100 minutes, Rated PG]
