Families with kids of all ages can take their movie experience to a new level on July 21 with the Rock Island Public Library’s Family Interactive Movie.
Registration is open now for the special family event, which takes place from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. July 21 in the Community Room of the Downtown Library, 401 19th St., according to a Wednesday release. Interactive movies include a film showing with a kit of actions, song lyrics, and props to help participants play along.
The library could not mention the upcoming movie title due to licensing restrictions, but the plot involves a frog with Hollywood dreams and a glamourous pig with a plan, among other characters. This origin story of the Muppets is a classic, G-rated road movie that families of all ages can enjoy together. The movie, and popcorn, are both free!
Registration is required. Each registered child will receive a bag of props and song lyrics. To sign up, see the family interactive movie listing on the online calendar at www.rockislandlibrary.org, or call 309-732-7360. Registration ends July 20.
