Fort Bend County Libraries will feature a free Family Movie Matinee for the Winter Break at the Sienna Branch Library, 8411 Sienna Springs Blvd in Missouri City, on Friday, January 3, beginning at 1:00 pm, in the Meeting Room of the library.
The special feature is a fantasy adventure film, released in 2013, starring James Franco as Oscar Diggs, a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics. When Diggs is hurled away from dusty Kansas into the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he has hit the jackpot, and that fame and fortune are his for the taking. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the inhabitants of Oz, Diggs must find out who is good and who is evil, before it is too late. Putting his magical talents to use through illusion, ingenuity, and even a bit of wizardry, Diggs transforms himself not only into a great and powerful leader of the land, but into a better man as well. This film is rated PG.
The movie is free and open to the public. For more information about the featured movie, call the branch library at 281-238-2900, or the library’s Public Information Office at 281-341-2677.
