Program Description

Event Details


That's how Akeelah feels when she wins her school spelling bee. She has a rough home life and doesn't feel like she belongs with the more privileged children who usually participate in the spelling bees. Can she overcome her own insecurities and provide her community with someone to rally around?

Come find out!

*Akeelah and the Bee is rated PG for mild language. Please pre-screen if you feel uncomfortable!*

Bring a water bottle and your favorite movie snack (nothing messy, please!) and enjoy a free movie night.
