    Merry Motion Picture in the Park

    Natchitoches, LA, November 10, 2023 – Join the Natchitoches Parish Library (NPL) for an enchanting evening under the stars at the much-anticipated "Merry Motion Picture in the Park.” After a weather-induced hiatus last year, the NPL is excited to announce the free public screening of the 2004 classic "The Polar Express" on Friday, November 17, at 6:30 PM in Natchitoches City Park on Amulet St.
    Hosted in the amphitheater area of the park, the event promises a magical experience for the whole family. The Friends of the NPL, ever committed to enhancing library programs and community enjoyment, will provide free hot cocoa and refreshments for movie-goers. While attendees are encouraged to savor these treats, they are also welcome to bring their own snacks. The amphitheater has informal ground-seating only, so it is recommended that viewers bring blankets or folding chairs to ensure their warmth and comfort throughout the movie.
    As the holiday season approaches, immerse yourself in the heartwarming tale of "The Polar Express," directed by Robert Zemeckis and featuring the talent of Tom Hanks. This Academy Award-winning film, rated G with a runtime of 1 hour and 40 minutes, is based on the beloved children's book by Chris Van Allsburg. Join the doubting young boy on an extraordinary train ride to the North Pole and discover the timeless lesson that the wonder of life never fades for those who believe.
    To add to the joy of the evening, a limited number of copies of the book will be given out to families in attendance, courtesy of Save the Children.
    Stay updated on event details and any potential weather-related announcements by following the NPL’s Facebook page or visiting natlib.org. Come and create magical memories with your family at the NPL’s "Merry Motion Picture in the Park!”
