OUTDOOR MOVIE NIGHT (December 3)
Movie Boyz will present an outdoor screening of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle at the Morningside Sports Club on December 3.
According to the movie’s plot, the tables are turned as four teenagers in detention are sucked into the world of Jumanji. When they discover an old video game console with a game they have never heard of, they are immediately thrust into the game’s jungle setting, into the bodies of their avatars. The cast includes Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan.
Food stalls will be available, or picnic baskets will be welcome.
