Library showing ‘The Lorax’
Just as schools in the parish have done recently, the Acadia Parish Library will celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss, one of America’s most popular children’s writers, with its March Saturday Morning Movie Matinee.
Set for Saturday, March 8, with the moving beginning at 10 a.m., the library’s Crowley location will air Dr. Suess’ “The Lorax.”
The Lorax, rated PG, was released in 2012 and is, of course, based off of Dr. Seuss’ book.
The plot of the movieis as follows:
In the walled-city of Thneedville, everything is artificial, including the trees, and the air is provided by the O’Hare Corporation for a price.
Twelve-year-old Ted falls for Audrey, who wants to see a real tree. Thus begins Ted’s journey to find a real tree to win Audrey’s affections.
Ted learns he must seek out someone called the Once-ler, who tells Ted that it began when he wanted to create something he called Thneed.
Ted finds a forest of trees with the most beautiful leaves and chops down a tree, but The Lorax explains that chopping down trees is wrong.
Also trying to stop Ted is O’Hare, who tells Ted he must stop because it could ruin his business.
Find out what happens to Ted and Audrey, The Lorax and the O’Hare corporation by attending the Children’s Movie Matinee on March 8.
