February 27, 2019
5:45 PM - 7:45 PM
Time Details:
This 2018 film is about two hours and 15 minutes long. It's rated PG-13 as there are many violent and frightening scenes, notably one where the villain shoots through his girlfriend to kill his enemy (killing her in the process.) There is also a small AMount of foul language. The film is praised, however, for its positive role models overall, cultural sensitivity, strong female roles, and positive portrayal of African characters. Many parents report that this aspect outweighs the violence so they are happy for their older kids to see the film. Read parent & kid reviews on Common Sense Media, linked below.

5:45 p.m., Eureka Library Family Movie Night, Black Panther

Wednesday, February 27, 2019

Black Panther is a Marvel Comics adventure film for teens and adults. In ancient days, an African warrior eats a plant growing near the site of a fallen meteor rich in the powerful and mysterious substance 'vibranium'. He is endowed with superpowers. Heir to these Black Panther powers is young King T'Challa of Wakanda, who vows to protect vibranium from those who would abuse it. Backed up by an all-female warrior troop, by Shuri, a beautiful, funny princess with science smarts and an inventive mind, and by a host of other characters, T'Challa shows courage and integrity in the face of family treachery and outside evils.
