Join us in the Matthews Opera House theater for our second film in our Fantasy Film Festival! We will be showing the 2014 fantasy film “Maleficent.” Films are free and start at 7:00 pm.
IMPORTANT: Masks will be required to be worn during the film.
As a beautiful young woman of pure heart, Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) has an idyllic life in a forest kingdom. When an invading army threatens the land, Maleficent rises up to become its fiercest protector. However, a terrible betrayal hardens her heart and twists her into a creature bent on revenge. She engages in an epic battle with the invading king’s successor, then curses his newborn daughter, Aurora — realizing only later that the child holds the key to peace in the kingdom.
