After a glorious but wet summer, the volunteers who put together the Skip and Marie Fletcher Winter Family Movie Series are proud to announce the beginning of another winter of movies here in Seward on Friday nights!!!
We will do our best to announce movies each week here on SCN, and we will still post the movies each week around town, but the best way to find out about the movies each week is to join our Facebook Group! www.facebook.com/groups/sewardalaskamovies
This week we are proud to bring two movies about two very different superheroes!
Showing at 6 PM
Captain Underpants (PG – 89 minutes)
George Beard and Harold Hutchins are two overly imaginative pranksters who spend hours in a treehouse creating comic books. When their mean principal threatens to separate them into different classes, the mischievous boys accidentally hypnotize him into thinking that he’s a ridiculously enthusiastic, incredibly dimwitted superhero named Captain Underpants.
Showing at 8 PM
Wonder Woman (PG-13 – 141 minutes)
Before she was Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, Diana meets an American pilot (Chris Pine) who tells her about the massive conflict that’s raging in the outside world. Convinced that she can stop the threat, Diana leaves her home for the first time. Fighting alongside men in a war to end all wars, she finally discovers her full powers and true destiny.
All of the movies are shown at the KM Rae Building / Seward Marine Center at the corner of Railway and 3rd Avenue. Tickets are $2 per movie and are sold starting 30 minutes before showtime!
Each week we count on finding volunteers to help sell tickets and clean up the theater after the movies. Please consider volunteering! The commitment is 60 minutes at most, and we promise that we always have a good time! If you are interested in helping out, click on the weekly signupgenius http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e094ea5ae2da2ff2-friday25 If you are interested in helping on a regular basis or have questions, please send us an email at email@example.com. We will post the signup genius for each week and we always need help!
In order to cover our costs, we need to raise money from sponsors and private donors! Right now, we have a ‘gofundme’ campaign with a goal of $1500 https://funds.gofundme.com/dashboard/1718sewardalaskamovies What is even better is that the Wellness For All group has agreed to match all of our personal donations up to $1500 – so if you contribute $10 they will double the amount to $20! If you have a business and would like to sponsor the entire series, we have room for several more sponsors in our weekly slide show! Please send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Also, each week a different non-profit will be operating the movie concessions. This is a great way to have your group members help a great community activity while earning some revenues for your group’s charitable purpose! This year, the Seward Prevention Coalition is managing the concession schedule. If you have questions or would like to have your group work the concessions one night, contact Katie at email@example.com .
We’re looking forward to a great turnout as we open our season this year! See you at the movies on Friday night!
