Movie Day Wednesday, Oct. 18, 12:45-2:25
Ready, Set, Action! You're invited to the Colfax Library to see a PG animated movie! A hilariously universal story about how a new baby's arrival impacts a family, told from the point of view of a delightfully unreliable narrator: a wildly imaginative 7-year-old named Tim. This movie is rated PG for some mild, rude humor (A PG movie rating stand for "parental guidance," as some material may not be suitable for all children). Children 7 & under need an adult present, kids age 8 - 12 need a parent permission.
