The room is filled with a group of middle school kids watching Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. On the screen Professor Quirrell says, “Troll in the dungeon! Thought you ought to know!” All of a sudden all of the kids watching the movie get up, screaming and switch seats with someone else. The next thing you know they start throwing paper wads at the television screen. No, these kids have not gone crazy! They are at the library participating in an interactive screening of the movie.
Interactive movies are fun, active way to experience movies, and the Pickerington Public Library is the place to go to enjoy an interactive movie. Each participant gets a script that tells them what to do at a specific time. This summer, our tweens participated in a Harry Potter interactive movie. In November they will get another opportunity to participate during our interactive movie showing of the holiday classic, Elf. So if you are a tween (or you know a tween), make sure you come to the library on November 24 to sing Christmas songs, sample spaghetti with syrup and Pixi Sticks, and eat lots of marshmallows.
You can find out more information about the event here. Can’t wait until November 24 to get into the holiday mood? Check out some of our Buddy the Elf inspired materials!
