Schedule of Events
What does it mean “to transform,” to make a difference, in the world or in ourselves? What can we learn from, and how do we cope with change? These questions are particularly important for younger audiences, and at Lenfest Kids we will be exploring them through a diverse array of films: animation, live action, classic, and contemporary.
Films Include: School of Rock, Honey I Shrunk the Kids, Hidden Figures, Spirited Away, and Big.
