Ender’s Game premieres tonight at the Strand!

The weather may be frightful tonight, but I hope that doesn’t keep you away for attending the premiere of “Ender’s Game” at the Strand Theatre tonight.  Hundreds Jacketof Delaware County District Library customers and Delaware City Schools students, teachers, and staff have read this fascinating novel sent in the future, as part of our collaborative community wide read, DelawaREADS.

As the final program in this well-attended community wide read, Kara Long of the Strand has arranged a premiere showing of the film that won’t be in other theaters until tomorrow.  The movie starts at 8:00 p.m. (after Trick or Treating) and stars Harrison Ford, Asa Butterfield, Viola Davis, Abigail Breslin and Ben Kingsley.

A brief synopsis of the movie:  The International Military seek out a leader who can save the human race from an alien attack. Ender Wiggin, a brilliant young mind, is recruited and trained to lead his fellow soldiers into a battle that will determine the future of Earth.

Sounds exciting, doesn’t it?

I hope you’ll join me tonight for this exciting DelawaREADS event!

Mary Jane Santos, Director
