Summer Film Series: “The Princess and the Frog”

The final movie of our 2022 Summer Film Series will be “The Princess and the Frog.” This musical film was released in 2009 by Walt Disney Pictures.

This story follows Tiana, a waitress desperate to fulfill her dreams of owning a restaurant in New Orleans. One fateful day, arrogant and carefree Prince Naveen crosses paths with hardworking Tiana in a very unconventional way. Prince Naveen has been transformed into a frog by a voodoo magician and, under the assumption that Tiana is a princess, requests a kiss to break the curse. Tiana obliges in hopes that Prince Naveen can help fulfill her restaurant dreams, but in a wild twist of events, Tiana finds herself turned into a frog too! With the help of a jazzy trumpet-playing alligator, a romantic Cajun firefly, and an old blind lady, Naveen and Tiana must race to break the spell and return to humans again. “The Princess and the Frog” is rated PG, and is an hour and 37 minutes long.

Bring your blankets and lawn chairs as we enjoy this film under the stars. Games and free refreshments (while supplies last) will begin at 7 p.m., and the movie will start just after sundown. You may bring your coolers, but please no pets or glass containers.

This movie is being shown in conjunction with our newest exhibit Mandela: The Official Exhibition. This major global exhibition explores the life of one of the world’s most famous freedom fighters and political leaders. The epic story of Nelson Mandela is told in a series of experiential galleries from his rural childhood home, through years of turbulent struggle against the Apartheid regime, to his eventual vindication and final years as South Africa’s first democratically elected president. Visitors will learn about why he is still such an important figure, as the exhibit explores his fight for racial equality, his uncanny ability to forgive, and his tireless work to unify South Africa. Mandela’s values and commitment to making the world a better place are just as vital now as they were during his lifetime. His is a story that can educate and inspire all who experience it. This exhibit will be on display in the Ansary Gallery of American History until April 23, 2023.
