Grab a blanket and picnic dinner and join me for my annual MOVIE IN THE PARK this Tuesday, August 9th, at dusk (approximately 8:00 p.m.) at Touhy Park, 7358 N. Paulina (at Jarvis). Joining me as sponsors for this year’s Movie in the Park are State Senator Heather Steans, Cook County Commissioner Larry Suffredin, and the Touhy Park Advisory Council.
This year’s movie is How to Train Your Dragon, a 3D computer-animated fantasy film by DreamWorks Animation loosely based on the 2003 book of the same name. The film was nominated for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Score at the 83rd Academy Awards. The movie also won ten Annie Awards, including Best Animated Feature.
The story takes place in a mythical Viking world where a young Viking teenager named Hiccup aspires to follow his tribe’s tradition of becoming a dragon slayer. After finally capturing his first dragon, and with it his chance at finally gaining the tribe’s acceptance, he finds that he no longer has the desire to kill it and instead befriends it.
