The Lorax
Sunday, May 22nd | 10am - 1pm

Join us every 3rd Sunday of the Month for our Story to Screen series, presented in partnership with The Savoy Bookshop & Cafe! Enjoy story time with The Savoy at The United, then we'll watch a movie on our Main Cinema based on the book we read!

This month we'll be reading and watching The Lorax (2012)!

Story time begins at 10 am--you can choose to stay for just the reading or for both (until about 1pm). Each Guest will receive a small popcorn and water with their ticket. The Savoy Book Store will also have a table on site selling the book that we read that day!

This event is open to all ages however this is a Youth program, and suggested ages are based on each movie.

ABOUT: In the walled city of Thneed-Ville, where everything is artificial and even the air is a commodity, a boy named Ted hopes to win the heart of his dream girl, Audrey. When he learns of her wish to see a real tree, Ted seeks out the Once-ler, a ruined old businessman outside of town in a stark wasteland. Upon hearing of how the hermit gave into his greed for profits and devastated the land over the protests of the Lorax, Ted is inspired to undo the disaster. However, the greedy Mayor of Thneed-Ville, Aloysius O'Hare, has made his fortune exploiting the environmental collapse and is determined to stop the boy from undermining his business.
