CineKids: Movie for Kids @ Claremont

Inspired by the true story of the first giraffe to visit France, Zarafa is a sumptuously animated and stirring adventure set amongst sweeping CinemaScope vistas of parched desert, wind-swept mountains and open skies. Maki, a boy on the run, meets Zarafa, a giraffe, and Hassan, a nomad who is ordered by the Pasha of Egypt to present Zarafa as a gift to King Charles of France. The three set off on an adventure to cross the Mediterranean in a hot air balloon, but all the while Maki is determined to find a way to bring Zarafa back to her rightful home.

"Back to the Future Part 2" Screening @North

GREAT SCOTT! 

Back in 1985, two time travelers bravely hurled themselves into the far-flung future of October 21st, 2015!  To celebrate their journey, we will be going back to the future with them at the North Branch!

From 3-5pm, stop by the North Branch to get your picture taken with a real Delorean, just like the one converted into a time machine in the classic comedy-adventure.

Then, at 4:30pm we will begin a special screening of Back to the Future 2, so that we can all collectively wonder at why we don't have flying cars, hoverboards, and self-drying clothing.
