See ‘Nim’s Island’ this afternoon
Matthew Alford OW Contributor | 7/13/2018, midnight
The Palmdale City Library, 700 E. Palmdale Blvd., continues its summer movie series today at 1 p.m. with a showing of the 2008 favorite, “Nim’s Island.”
Life is an adventure for a courageous youngster named Nim (Abigail Breslin), who lives on an exotic island with her marine-biologist father and a menagerie of animal friends. When Nim’s father goes missing, she turns to the only person she knows who can help her: adventurer Alex Rover (Gerard Butler). But what she doesn’t know is that Alex Rover is really Alexandra (Jodie Foster), a timid recluse. Though faint of heart, Alexandra must find the courage within herself to come to Nim’s aid.
The final movie scheduled to be shown as part of the Summer Movie Series is Ratatouille (rated G) on July 20.
This event is co-sponsored by the Friends of the Palmdale City Library.
The Palmdale City Library is open 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
