Main Event: Outdoor Movie Night - Wonder (PG) - 113 mins

Friday, June 15
9:00 p.m. or dusk, Springhurst Park, Lees Avenue
Based on the New York Times bestseller, WONDER tells the incredibly inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman. Born with facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, Auggie becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade. As his family, his new classmates, and the larger community all struggle to discover their compassion and acceptance, Auggie's extraordinary journey will unite them all and prove you can't blend in when you were born to stand out.
Presented in partnership with Sandy Hill Community Health Centre. No alcohol permitted; bring your own chair or blanket.
Raindate is Saturday, June 16. To find out if the rain date is in effect please check www.OttawaEastCAG.ca after 4:00 p.m. on the day of the event.
