Ideas for movie night?

(2) It is difficult to find movies that are good for children and adults. Some movies are too “children” and most are too “adult” (violence monsters horror and violence).

(2b) A few months ago we had a lesson about movies. And we shared the idea for an “international film festival” during the summer. Yes we know Cinemark at Perkins Rowe already does this. But how about a series of movies from other countries? that “express the culture, beliefs, and dreams of your people”? For example – if someone says “what movie from the last 10-15 years represents Nigeria / China / South Korea / Russia / Japan / Brasil / Iran / India / Mexico?” what answer might you give? We do not know if or when we will do this “film festival”. However…

(3) Please share with us your ideas for Movie Night. Even share with us your ideas for a movie… from your home country… that would be a good choice for an “international film festival”.

Movie Night! this Friday April 28

 


Church of the Nations is planning on movie night this Friday April 28 starting at 6:30 p.m. (Please note this is one hour earlier than when English Conversation starts. This is so children can come and be home sooner.) We will turn the chapel into a giant movie theater! Free drinks, snacks, and delicious popcorn. This activity is free! Families and children are welcome.   We will have English Conversation on Friday May 5.

For legal reasons we cannot say on our website what movie we will show. (Because of license and advertising law. It is difficult to explain.) If you ask us we can tell you. It will be a movie that is good for children and adults.

(We plan to show the movie “Paddington”. Rick Wright has watched part of it. The bear Paddington is in many ways like an international who just arrived in Baton Rouge. It received a 98% score at Rotten Tomatoes which is extremely high.)

Tells the story of the funny adventures of a young Peruvian bear (voiced by Firth) who travels to London to look for a home. Finding himself lost and alone, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined – until he meets the kind Brown family who read the label around his neck that says “Please look after this bear. Thank you,” and offer him a temporary safe place. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the attention of a museum taxidermist.

You can drive yourself to the church building or the church bus can pick you up at:

    1. Boone (next to Place du Plantier apartments) at 5:45 p.m.
