If you are looking for some free entertainment in the new year, check out Free Family Flicks at the Enoch Pratt Free Library. Come celebrate the fourth anniversary of the series, which has been running since the beginning of 2009, with the Disney/Pixar film Brave. This is a "bring the whole family" event.

As the Pratt Library CEO Dr. Carla Hayden says, "We understand times are tough for the average family during these difficult financial times. These free film screenings on our big screen are the ideal family activity without breaking the budget."
Each of the movies in the Free Family Flicks series are held at the Central Library located at 400 Cathedral Street, upstairs on the third floor, on the big screen in Wheeler Auditorium at 2 pm. Free Family Flicks is a once-a-month event.

Brave2The next flick is a screening of Brave on Saturday, January 5th at 2 pm in Wheeler Auditorium. According to movlic.com and Swank Motion Pictures, Inc., "This film follows the heroic journey of Merida, a skilled archer and headstrong daughter of King Fergus and Queen Elinor. Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the unruly and uproarious lords of the land. Merida's actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric Witch for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to harness all of her skills and resources – including her clever and mischievous triplet brothers – to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late, discovering the meaning of true bravery."

This 2012 Walt Disney Pictures/Pixar Animation film is directed by Mark Andrews, the running time is 100 minutes, it is rated PG, and it features the voices of Emma Thompson, Kelly Macdonald, and Kevin McKidd.
