2017 Maitland Outdoor Movies
2017 Maitland Outdoor Movies – March 4th at 7 PM, enjoy Screen on the Green in Maitland! This event is free for all and located at Maitland Middle School Soccer Field located at 1901 Choctaw Trail.
This month’s feature is Finding Dory. This film is rated PG and this event comes to you from the City of Maitland Parks and Recreation Family Program!
From CommonSenseMedia.org: Parents need to know that Finding Dory is the sequel to Pixar’s 2003 classic Finding Nemo. This time, instead of a parent searching for a child, the story revolves around Dory looking for her family. Like most Pixar movies, there are some very emotional moments, including an early montage in which young Dory — separated from her parents (a situation that may very well upset younger kids) — searches the ocean for them … until she forgets what she was looking for. There are other stressful separations between friends, too, as well as some peril and tense moments (like a predator giant squid the characters need to get away from and action-packed escape antics), as well as slapstick and near misses. But in the end, the “happily ever after” adventure is still appropriate for viewers of virtually all ages, and Dory’s story is ultimately uplifting, as is the movie’s treatment of her disability, which is never ignored. Finding Dory‘s themes of teamwork, perseverance, family, friendship, and unconditional love are relatable for even the littlest kids. (Tip: Be sure to watch through the end of the credits to see the extra scene featuring friends from the first film!)
