The 1891 Fredonia Opera House will screen the animated family comedy "Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted" 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. The Book Nook has donated several books, which will be given away in a drawing before the film.
The Fredonia Opera House will show ‘Madagascar 3” on Friday at 7 p.m. as part of Family Night at the Movies. Admission is free.
In "Madagascar 3," Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Gloria the Hippo, and Melman the Giraffe are still fighting to find their way home to their beloved Big Apple. And of course, King Julien, Maurice and the Penguins also are all along for the comedic adventure. Their journey takes them through Europe where they find the perfect cover - a traveling circus, which they reinvent - Madagascar style.
The animated film features an all-star cast of voices, including Chris Rock, Ben Stiller, David Schwimmer, Jada Pinkett Smith, Jessica Chastain and Cedric the Entertainer. Rated PG for some mild action and rude humor, the film runs 93 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.
