The story of Mowgli, a young boy raised by wolves, was inspired by the Rudyard Kipling book of the same name. It tells of his adventure-filled, if reluctant, return to the human village to escape a man-hating tiger, Shere Khan, while escorted by the wise panther, Bagheera, and the happy-go-lucky bear, Baloo. The movie includes a number of upbeat, memorable songs, including The Bare Necessities and I Wan’na Be Like You (The Monkey Song).
The fun will include face painting and arts and crafts. Lunch and snacks, including pizza and soda, will be sold in the lobby following the film. For more information, call 341-4219.
