The 1891 Fredonia Opera House will screen the animated family comedy "Scooby Doo Camp Scare" Friday at 7 p.m. Sponsored by the Lily Dale Assembly as part of Family Night at the Movies, admission to the film is free.
Family Night at the Movies generally features films based on or that inspire books for children. The series was developed as a way for adults to share the excitement of reading and great family entertainment with the children in their lives. The Book Nook has donated several books, which will be given away in a drawing before the film.
In "Scooby Doo Camp Scare" the counselors are friendly, the activities are endless and the urban legends are intense. In fact, every time someone tells a ghost story, the creepy creatures come to life! But the Mystery Inc. gang doesn't spook that easily. Scooby Doo, Shaggy, Freddy, Daphne and Velma fish for clues to solve the mysteries of The Woodsman, The Fishman and the Banshee of Black Canyon in this animated feature-length family film that gives a whole new meaning to the term "camp spirit!" Released in 2010, "Scooby Doo Camp Scare" features the voices of Matthew Lillard, Mark Hamill and Mindy Cohn. It is rated PG and runs 72 minutes.
Free admission tickets are available only at the door on the night of the show. Seating is limited to 400. Patrons are reminded that there is no food or drink allowed in the Opera House and that all children must be accompanied by an adult.
