Relive the nostalgia of watching a movie on the big screen outdoors in the comfort of your vehicle on Friday, Sept. 19, when Montgomery County Community College and Whitpain Township’s Department of Parks and Recreation present Disney’s “Maleficent.”
The College’s parking lot near the 595 Cathcart Road entrance in Blue Bell will open at 5:30 p.m. and the movie will begin at dusk. Admission is $10 per car for the general public and $5 for College students, faculty and staff with a valid ID card. Concessions will be available. As part of the College’s ongoing 50th Anniversary celebration this year, the first 50 cars will receive anniversary magnets.
Starring Angelina Jolie as the villainess Maleficent, this action-adventure family movie is a re-creation of Walt Disney’s 1959 animated film, “Sleeping Beauty.” Co-stars include Elle Fanning and Sharlto Copley. The movie is approximately 97 minutes in length.
Prior to the start of the main feature, a brief trailer of “The History of Montco, a Documentary” will be shown. Created by alumni Joe Sapienza and Sean King, the documentary features the 50-year history of Montgomery County Community College. Copies of the documentary will be available at the College’s libraries at Central and West campuses this fall.
