FREE OUTDOOR SCREENING The City of Mill Valley, Mill Valley Recreation, the Chamber of Commerce, and MVFF invite you to a free outdoor screening of a croony, swoony animation classic that’ll delight the young—and the young at heart! Bugville, a bustling insect community, sits at the edge of a city garden that’s threatened by foot traffic and construction. Good-hearted grasshopper Hoppity returns to Bugville to find Mr. Bumble and Honey, his lovely daughter—and Hoppity’s bee-loved—fearing for their community’s safety from big-shoed humans. They should worry more about C. Bagley Beetle and his droning henchmen, Swat the Fly and Smack the Mosquito. Beetle wants Honey for himself—and he doesn’t care who he has to squash to get her. Hoppity thinks he’s found a way to give the bugs a safe and beautiful home, but it’ll require trusting some “human ones” and foiling Beetle’s schemes. The whole family will enjoy the rich colors, buzzy animation, and swinging songs by Hoagy Carmichael and Frank Loesser.

Preceeded by Mill Valley Redux, Tiffany Shlain and Devon McAllister’s homage to Rita Abrams’s 1970 hometown hit.

Movie screening is free with general admission seating. Please bring your own blanket or low beach chair. Snacks may be purchased with proceeds to benefit community programs. For more information contact Mill Valley Recreation: recreate@cityofmillvalley.org
