Free Movie Viewing

October 23, 2010

I was just looking at the Chattanooga-Hamilton County Library website and noticed on their calendar of events:

October 30th, join us for the 2010 animated tale about a hapless young Viking who aspires to hunt dragons, as he becomes the unlikely friend of a young dragon himself, and learns there may be more to the creatures than he assumed. Rated PG, 98 minutes.
The Eastgate Library will show free family-friendly films on select Saturdays at 2:30 pm. All movies are rated G or PG, and are open to the public. Snacks and drinks in closed containers are permitted in the movie room.

But, alas, this is the same day as the Cemetery Stroll.  Why do two good events happen at the same time?!?
