Keiki of all ages will find themselves sitting on the edge of their seats on Friday night, June 28, as an imaginative elephant named Horton, played by Jim Carrey, discovers an entire family of microscopic creatures living on a tiny dust speck named Whoville.
The challenge of keeping these creatures happy and healthy begins to turn sour as their clover home falls into 3,000,000 clovers. Will Whoville survive the caldron of boiling oil? Will Horton forgive the villaness Sour Kangaroo, played by Carol Burnett? Will the tiny residents of Whoville make it to a safe haven?
This box office success is the third Dr. Seuss feature film adaptation, and includes a music soundtrack of 34 catchy tunes, including the theme song – Can’t Fight This Feeling, by REO Speedway.
“Horton Hears a Who” begins at 6:30 p.m. during New Hope Waimea’s monthly Movie Night. Families are encouraged to bring folding chairs, blankets, dinner and even the family pup, to Church Row Park, located on Mamalahoa Highway in Waimea. (If the weather turns, the movie will move into the New Hope Waimea Sanctuary.) Free popcorn, bottled water and hot cocoa will be served.
