Opera House To Screen Free Film Friday Night

FREDONIA – The 1891 Fredonia Opera House will screen the animated family comedy “Hop” on Friday at 7 p.m. Sponsored by the Lily Dale Assembly as part of Family Night at the Movies, admission to the film is free.

Family Night at the Movies often features films based on or that inspire books for children. The series was originally developed as a way for adults to share the excitement of reading and family entertainment with the children in their lives. The Book Nook has donated several books, which will be given away in a drawing before the film.

Blending state-of-the-art animation with live action, “Hop” tells the comic tale of Fred, an out-of-work slacker who accidentally injures the Easter Bunny and must take him in as he recovers. As Fred struggles with the world’s worst house guest, both will learn what it takes to finally grow up. “Hop” stars James Marsden as Fred, and features the voices of Russell Brand, Hank Azaria and Hugh Laurie.

Free admission tickets are available only at the door on the night of the show. Seating is limited to 400; patrons are reminded that there is no food or drink allowed in the Opera House and that all children must be accompanied by an adult.
