Afterschool Teen Movie with Snacks: Zootopia

Time: 
Tuesday, December 13, 2016 - 3:00pm - 5:00pm
Location: 
Meeting Room

Teens grade 6-12 are invited to come relax and enjoy free snacks in the Meeting Room while we show a hit movie!

In a city inhabited by anthropomorphic animals who have abandoned traditional predator/prey roles in favor of civilized coexistence, uptight rabbit police officer Judy Hopps (voiced by Ginnifer Goodwin) is forced to work with charismatic fox con artist Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman) to crack a major case involving the mysterious disappearance of some carnivorous citizens. But when a few of the missing critters reappear, having reverted to pre-enlightenment savagery, it exposes existing anti-carnivore prejudice among the city's herbivores that threatens to damage the fabric of their diverse metropolis. 

Mahalo to the Friends of the Aina Haina Public Library for providing funding for snacks.
