About the Movie: Growing up in an underground world of rodents, young mouse Celestine has been raised to fear the bears that live aboveground. But when she meets a poor musician bear named Ernest, the two find that they have more in common than they would have imagined and embark on a series of adventures. Beautiful and utterly enchanting, ERNEST AND CELESTINE is a heartwarming look at a friendship that transcends adversity.

Movies on the Block is a free, seasonal screening program designed to support Philadelphia neighborhoods with little access to film by invigorating established community gathering spaces and facilitating engagement with meaningful film programming and activities. Each free movie offers an additional community activity, and we’re excited to be partnering with the Philadelphia Film Society to bring free yoga classes to these neighborhood events. Our neighborhood schedule for the season:
AUG 20th: Kingsessing
AUG 26th: Juniata
SEPT 1st: North Philly
SEPT 9th: Newbold
SEPT 17th: Mantua
