The Oscars will not air on television until Sunday, February 24, but before then you can catch a screening of one of the nominees right here at the Enoch Pratt Free Library. Nominated for the best animated feature film for the year 2012, ParaNorman features the story of a young boy who can see and talk to the dead and goes on an adventure to save his town.
The Enoch Pratt Free Library will show ParaNorman in the Central Library, Wheeler Auditorium this Saturday, February 2 starting at 2 p.m. Bring the whole family for this spooktacular flick. As movlic.com and Swank Motion Pictures, Inc. write, "When a small town comes under siege by zombies, who can it call? Only misunderstood local boy Norman, who is able to speak with the dead. In addition to the zombies, he’ll have to take on ghosts, witches and, worst, of all, grown-ups, to save his town from a centuries-old curse."
If you miss the screening this Saturday, make sure to see it at the Pennsylvania Avenue Branch on Monday, April 15 at 5 p.m. or at the Southeast Anchor Library on Saturday, April 6 at 11 a.m.
This 2012 Focus Features film is directed by Chris Butler and Sam Fell and the running time is 92 minutes. It is rated PG and features the voices of Kodi Smit-McPhee, Anna Kendrick, Christopher Mitz-Plasse, and a plethora of other Hollywood A-listers.
