Sidewalk’s Family Book + Film Club is film fun for the whole family! Based on their monthly Book+ Film Clubs, this summer program is an opportunity for families to share an activity together and for children to engage their reading & critical thinking skills through the summer. Families sign up, books are mailed to them or picked up from the cinema, and then the adults and kids convene at the Sidewalk Cinema for a private screening and discussion of the film and the book. Family Book + Film Club meets for the screening and discussion at 10am. Concessions will be available for purchase.
The $35 registration fee includes 1 book, 1 kid’s private screening ticket, 1 adult private screening ticket, and the post film discussion. Each additional participant (like siblings, friends, or another adult) is $8. Each additional book is $10. Register for all 4 sessions for $120.
