Saturday Morning at the Movies (benefiting the MEP Scholarship Fund)
March 16 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
Join us for a screening of the heartwarming film, “My Neighbor Totoro”. Suggested donation (cash or check only, please) at the door of $7 per person, or $25 per family (no donation suggested for babies under 1!). All donations will go to support the Mary E. Phillips Scholarship fund, making cooperative preschool affordable for all!
From Common Sense Media: “Parents need to know that My Neighbor Totoro is a fine pick for the entire family. Although there are slightly creepy “dust sprites” that appear in the house at first, they eventually disappear. Totoro himself might look and sound a bit odd, but he’s quite sweet and gentle. The protagonist girls have an ill mother with an unnamed disease, but the moments in the hospital aren’t sad or depressing. Some parents may not feel comfortable with the amount of freedom the girls (as is the case with children in all of Hayao Miyazaki‘s films) have to wander off alone, either around their neighborhood, the surrounding forest, or on a long walk to visit their mother. Overall, this is a family film in the truest sense — it appeals to moviegoers young and old alike.”
