Gateway Performing Arts Center
The Gateway Bands will be hosting a “Boo-vie Night” fundraiser on Friday, Oct 26 in the Gateway Performing Arts Center (GPAC). Doors open at 5:30 p.m. where there will be pizza and treats (for sale), games and a costume contest. The movie—ParaNorman—begins at 6:30 p.m. and is free to attend.
ParaNorman is an animated comedy and adventure film. It features Norman, a young boy, who can speak to ghosts. Norman must stop a curse from a witch to save his town.
This movie night is open to elementary and middle school students and their families; please be advised the film contains some crude humor/mild language. Common Sense Media reports that this film (rated PG) may be scary for young children who don’t like monsters, ghosts, etc. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
The Shipman Fund of the Gateway Education Foundation received a $30 thousand grant earlier this year, which was used to update the projection system in the GPAC in order to show high resolution films.
