ALSO FRIDAY, JUNE 16-THURSDAY, JUNE 22

BORN IN CHINA

Screenings daily 1 pm

Rated  G * running time 1:20

All tickets $3

Narrated by John Krasinski

A Disneynature release, filmmaker Li Chuan’s documentary follows the adventures of three animal families in China from frigid mountains to the heart of the bamboo forest: the majestic panda, the savvy golden monkey and the elusive snow leopard.

*PARENTAL NOTE (from CommonSenseMedia.org): “While it’s family friendly overall and promotes messages related to courage and family, there are scenes of animals in peril and fighting for survival and death that could be scary for very little or sensitive kids. The harsh realities of living in the wild include seeing a baby monkey being swept up by a hawk, animals viciously attacking each other, the death of an animal mother. But older kids and parents will likely be interested in seeing this remote part of the world and its inhabitants.”
