Adults and children are invited to Movie Night at the Flatbush Jewish Center. "Gasland," a film by Josh Fox, will be shown to the adults while children are in another room in their pajamas watching "The Lorax." Both movies begin at 6:30.
A light dinner will be served in the Hanid Room at 6:00 p.m. The cost of dinner and a movie (or just the movie, if you don't want dinner) is $5.00 per adult, $2.00 per child. Menu: Italian dairy, salads, popcorn, and beverages. If you can't pay, you won't be turned away.
After dinner, the adults will stay in the Hanid Room and watch "Gasland,"a 2010 documentary about hydraulic fracturing (commonly referred to as "hydrofracking" or "fracking"). The movie's intention is to warn the public about fracking's negative effects on the environment, the water supply, and people's health.
Kids will go upstairs to the kids activity room where Dr. Seuss' "The Lorax" will be shown. "Twelve-year-old Ted will do anything to find a real live Truffula Tree in order to impress the girl of his dreams. As he embarks on his journey, Ted discovers the incredible story of the Lorax, a grumpy but charming creature who speaks for the trees."
Bring pillows and blankets to keep the children warm and comfortable.
A ride home will be available to those who need one. If you need a ride to Flatbush Jewish Center, call (718) 871-5200 to make arrangements.
