Movie Night for Families -- Monkey Kingdom 
Friday, December 2, 6 p.m., Town Hall

Disney Nature, the Mouse’s nature-documentary arm, continues its quest to introduce kids to our cousins in the wild with Monkey Kingdom, a charming film that gets us up close to animals in their own environment in a way that not even the most sophisticated zoo could ever achieve. Rotten Tomatoes gives this a 94% rating! In the Sri Lankan jungle lives “Maya,” a macaque monkey. Tina Fey’s narration is full of good humor that will not displease adults, but this is a child-friendly film, from the silly soundtrack — “Hey Hey We’re the Monkees” accompanies our introduction to the macaque tribe — to much sweetly goofy monkey antics.  Monkey Kingdom has it all, from monkey politics to monkey warfare to monkey romance, but it’s demure on the details: there is no blood here, and Maya’s personal life jumps from “hey, she’s got a handsome suitor” to “hey, she’s got a cute baby.”  Kids will recognize, appreciate, and cheer Maya’s journey as she becomes a confident creature who finds a comfortable place in her world.

Pizza, drinks and snacks will be served beginning at 5:40 p.m.  The show starts promptly at 6 p.m.  Space is limited, so please RSVP to townoffice@townofchevychase.org or 301-654-7144.  Parents, or other responsible adults, must attend the movie with their children.
