  • ALICE Through the Looking Glass: Teens & Tweens Movie
    Free movies at the Keyport Public Library presents a special presentation especially for tweens and early teens: ALICE Through the Looking Glass! This screening is intended for kids in fourth through eighth grade, and parents are encouraged to drop your kids off at 6:30 pm, and pick them back up at 9:00. The movie has a running time of about 1 hour, 53 minutes. Light snacks will be served, and attendees will create a fun Alice-themed craft! Kids are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite Alice characters! All children must be signed in and out at the Library by a parent or guardian.Directed by James Bobid, this 2016 Disney film continues the story from Tim Burton’s 2010 Alice in Wonderland. It is based on the characters created by Lewis Carroll. The film stars Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska, Matt Lucas, Rhys Ifans, Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen and features the voices of Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen, Timothy Spall and Alan Rickman, in his final film role.In the film, Alice comes across a magical looking glass that takes her back to Wonderland, where she finds that the Mad Hatter is acting madder than usual and wants to discover the truth about his family. Alice then travels through time (with the “Chronosphere”), comes across friends and enemies at different points of their lives, and embarks on a race to save the Hatter before time runs out.This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Keyport Public Library, whose fundraising efforts allowed the purchase of a projector and screen!
