HST Film Screening: Lilo & Stitch

Thursday, June 2, 2022 - 3:00pm

Catch a Wave at High Street Theatre

High Street Theatre welcomes summer with two films showcasing big waves and those who love them.

Lilo and Stitch invites viewers to crash-land on Earth with Stitch, a runaway genetic experiment from a faraway planet. As he wreaks havoc on the Hawaiian Islands, he becomes the mischievous adopted alien "puppy" of an independent little girl named Lilo and learns about loyalty, friendship, and 'ohana, the Hawaiian tradition of family. Lilo and Stitch is rated PG for mild sci-fi action. Blue Crush follows Anne Marie – a dedicated competitive surfer raising her teenage sister – and her friends as they fulfill their dream of living the ultimate adventure amid the island paradise of Hawaii's fabled North Shore.

It is rated PG-13 for sexual content, teen partying, language and a fight. Children under 12 must be accompanied by a responsible guardian. Schedules, film trailers, and details about the ratings can be found on the LCVA website and Facebook page, or by scanning the QR on the exterior of the theatre.

The Summer Days and Nights series is made possible in part by the Virginia Commission for the Arts, National Endowment for the Arts, Haley Auto Mall, and Caryn’s Bridals, Formals & Tuxedos.
