King Farm Movie Night Tomorrow Night With “Soul”
Bring a blanket or a lawn chair as King Farm movies on the lawn returns with this year’s Oscar winner for best animated film Disney’s Soul playing on the big movie screen tomorrow, Saturday, May 22, 2021 at 8:30 p.m.
Joe is a middle-school band teacher whose life hasn’t quite gone the way he expected. His true passion is jazz — and he’s good. But when he travels to another realm to help someone find their passion, he soon discovers what it means to have soul.
The movie is rated PG and will start promptly at 8:30 pm on the Saddle Ridge Circle lawn area adjacent to the Saddle Ridge Community Center. To help us follow safe COVID-19 protocols, we ask all who attend to socially distance themselves while seated on the lawn, and to avoid congregating in large groups. Attendees will be required to adhere to the local Montgomery County mandates on mask use for vaccinated and unvaccinated persons while attending all outdoor King Farm activities and events.
