The Green Sanctuary Committee of First Parish Church will show the family movie, “The Last Mimzy”  on Friday April 1, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. in the parish hall at 35 Church St., Watertown.   Pizza will be available at 6:30 p.m. for those who RSVP to the church – 617-924-5143 or fpwatertown@comcast.net.    This will be the final film of the year long environmental series presented by the Committee.  All ages are invited to attend.  “The Last Mimzy” (rated PG)  is a 2007 science fiction family film directed by Bob Shaye, centers on two children who develop preternatural powers when they encounter a mysterious box containing strange devices, presumed to be toys.  We soon learn this is the story of a distant future’s attempt to avert a catastrophic ecological disaster that has destroyed their world. High tech devices, masquerading as toys, are sent back in time into the hands of Noah and Emma, two children who live with their parents in early 21st century Seattle. The “toys” are mostly incomprehensible to Emma and Noah, except for what appears to be a stuffed rabbit named Mimzy.  See what they do to avert ecological disaster!
