The Blind Side, starring Academy Award® Winner for Best Actress Sandra Bullock, is based on an extraordinary true story that features Michael Oher (Quinton Aaron), who knows little about family, and even less about football. What the homeless teen does know are the streets and projects of Memphis. Well-to-do Leigh Anne Tuohy (Sandra Bullock) knows little about his world. Yet when she and Michael meet, he’s found a home. And the Tuohys found something just as life-changing: a beloved new son and brother. This real-life story unveils the remarkable journey of a college All-American and first-round NFL draft pick who was a winner before he ever stepped onto the playing field.
Other movies in the Family Movie Nights series include Harry Potter & The Sorcerer’s Stone on Friday Aug. 15, featuring a concert performance by West Coast Classical Orchestra before the movie; and Finding Nemo on Friday, Aug. 22.
In Harry Potter & The Sorcerer’s Stone, a three-time Oscar nominated film adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s bestseller, Harry Potter learns on his 11th birthday that he is the orphaned son of two powerful wizards and possesses magical powers of his own. At Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Harry embarks on the adventure of a lifetime. He learns the high-flying sport Quidditch and plays a thrilling game with living chess pieces on his way to face a Dark Wizard bent on destroying him.
Finding Nemo features Nemo, an adventurous young clownfish, who is unexpectedly taken from his Great Barrier Reef home to a dentist’s office aquarium. It’s up to his worrisome father Marlin and his friendly but forgetful regal blue tang fish Dory to bring Nemo home — meeting vegetarian sharks, surfer dude turtles, hypnotic jellyfish, hungry seagulls, and more along the way.
