Friday Family Flicks


Join us on Fridays each month to watch a newly released family movie! This month's movie is How to Train Your Dragon 2:

It’s been five years since Hiccup and Toothless successfully united dragons and vikings on the island of Berk. While Astrid, Snotlout and the rest of the gang are challenging each other to dragon races (the island’s new favorite contact sport), the now inseparable pair journey through the skies, charting unmapped territories and exploring new worlds. When one of their adventures leads to the discovery of a secret ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace. Now, Hiccup and Toothless must unite to stand up for what they believe while recognizing that only together do they have the power to change the future of both men and dragons.

This film stars the voices of Jay Baruchel, Cate Blanchett, and Gerard Butler. It is rated PG and has a running time of 102 minutes.

Refreshments will also be available.

Date and Time: 
Friday, December 12, 2014 - 6:00pm to 7:45pm
