SATURDAY NIGHT AT THE MOVIES :  Our movie for May 13 will be Collateral Beauty starring Will Smith. Join us at 6:00 PM in the teen classroom. 

When a successful New York advertising executive (Will Smith) suffers a great tragedy, he retreats from life. While his concerned friends try desperately to reconnect with him, he seeks answers from the universe by writing letters to Love, Time and Death. When his notes bring unexpected personal responses, he begins to understand how these constants interlock in a life fully lived and how even the deepest loss can reveal moments of meaning and beauty.

Directed by: David Frankel

Cast: Will Smith, Edward Norton, Helen Mirren, Naomie Harris, Kate Winslet, Rated PG-13. Free!

We'll have seating on the lawn but feel free to bring your picnic blanket and chairs if you prefer. There will be games and activities for the little ones, too.
