OWLs Fly to the Movies

For our outing several OWLs have requested we repeat our trips to the movies that we began last winter. With the Christmas movie season beginning in November, it is an excellent opportunity to see some great family entertainment. The movie “The Star” will be released in mid-November. It is an animated film (several were disappointed we didn’t see an animated film last year) about the Christmas Story, but told from an entirely new perspective. That of the animals. The graphics are beautiful, the story, well we all know the story, but never from the point of view of camels the kings rode, Mary’s donkey or the sheep in the manger. It will be a humorous and heartwarming way to kick off the Christmas Season. The plan is to view a late afternoon show on Tuesday, November 21, followed by supper at a local establishment. We will plan on meeting at the church at 4:00 PM, but check the bulletin and emails for a potential time change once show times are posted. Movies are a bargain ($5) on Tuesday’s with free popcorn for Magical Movie Rewards Members. Dinner in on your own.
