Fort Bend County Libraries will feature free Friday Movie Matinees at Sugar Land Branch Library, 550 Eldridge, beginning in June. A variety of movie genres, from animated family films to science-fiction thrillers, will be shown.
On Friday, June 8, library patrons will be treated to a family drama based on the real-life story of a dolphin named Winter, who lost its tail after being caught in a crab trap. Winter is rescued and sent to a marine rehabilitation center, where a young boy named Sawyer is determined to help the dolphin by enlisting the support of a pioneering doctor to create a unique prosthetic appendage to restore Winter’s ability to swim. Showtime is 12:30 pm, in the Meeting Room of the library. This movie is rated PG.
The special feature on Friday, June 22, is set in Paris in the 1930s. An orphaned boy secretly lives in the walls of a busy train station. He learned to fix clocks and other gadgets from his late father and uncle, and he uses his skills to keep the train-station clocks in working order. The only thing that he has left that connects him to his father is an automaton (mechanical man) that does not work without a special key, which Hugo must find to unlock the secret he believes the automaton contains. Showtime is 12:30 pm, in the Meeting Room. This movie is rated PG.
The movies are free and open to the public. For more information about the featured movies, call the branch library at 281-238-2140 or the library’s Public Information Office at 281-341-2677.
