Free for All Ages

Books 2 Movies is a collaborative partnership between the Park City Library, Summit County Library and the Park City Film Series that engages young readers in literature through film, and introduces them to the art of cinematic storytelling. These Free films are screened on the first Saturday of each month at 4pm at the Park City and Kimball Junction Libraries. Selected films are based on popular children’s/young adult books with the intent of getting kids hooked on books by introducing them to engaging characters and story lines. Members of the community are encouraged to read the books upon which the films are based prior to the movie, although this is not required to attend. 

After a deadly earthquake destroys his home in Peruvian rainforest, a young bear makes his way to England in search of a new home. The bear, dubbed "Paddington" for the London train station, finds shelter with the Brown family. Although Paddington's amazement at urban living soon endears him to the Browns, someone else has her eye on him: Taxidermist Millicent Clyde.
