Bixby Free Outdoor Summer Movie- Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
July 29, 2022 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Bixby Library continues their free outdoor summer movies with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is an all-new adventure returning us to the wizarding world created by J.K. Rowling. Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything) stars in the central role of wizarding world magizoologist Newt Scamander, under the direction of David Yates, who helmed the last four Harry Potter blockbusters. The film marks the screenwriting debut of J.K. Rowling, whose beloved Harry Potter books were adapted into the top-grossing film franchise of all time. Her script was inspired by the Hogwarts textbook Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, written by her character Newt Scamander.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.
This film is rated PG-13.
Thank you to the Friends of the Bixby Library who funded the purchase of the screen that makes these outdoor movies possible.
Bring your lawn chairs, blankets, and bug spray to view the movie from our parking lot. Please do not park in the Bixby parking lot (this is where we’ll be showing the movie). Instead, parking is available at the bank next door and on Main Street. Walking or biking is strongly encouraged.
August’s showing will be Mary Poppins returns, released in 2018 and rated PG.
