Thursday, July 14: Summer Family Movie showing of “A Shine of Rainbows” @ 2:00 pm. In this live-action family film, shy and stammering 8-year-old orphan Tomas is plucked from a city orphanage and brought to the idyllic island of Corrie off the coast of Ireland. His new mother is as loving and open as his new father is gruff and withdrawn, disappointed that his beloved wife chose "the runt of the litter." This is an Irish tale with magnificent sweeping landscapes, mythical creatures--seals that are said to carry messages to the dead--and tragedy that threatens Tomas's newfound home and happiness. Rated PG. (101 min.)
