The 1891 Fredonia Opera House will screen the animated family comedy "Puss in Boots" on 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 often features films based on or that inspire books for children. The series was originally developed as a way for adults to share the excitement of reading and great family entertainment with the children in their lives.
In "Puss in Boots," it's years before Puss meets Shrek and Donkey; and the adorable but tricky sword-fighting feline, Puss, must clear his name from charges that make him a wanted fugitive. While trying to steal magic beans from the infamous criminals Jack and Jill, the hero crosses paths with his old friend, but now enemy, Humpty Dumpty and a new female rival, Kitty Softpaws. Together, the three plan to work together to steal the magic beans from Jack & Jill, in order to get to the Giant's castle, where they will steal the goose that lays the golden eggs, all to help clear Puss' name. The film features the voices of Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek and Zach Galifianakis. Rated PG for some adventure action and mild rude humor, it runs 90 minutes.
Free admission tickets are available only at the door on the night of the show. Seating is limited to 400; and 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.
