Houston, Texas (PRWEB) February 05, 2014
The Glenda Jean Mostyn and Joe E. Moreno Foundation and ReelAbilities: Houston Disability Film Festival 2014 are co-hosting a free, packed screening of “How to Train Your Dragon” on Sunday, February 9th at the Children’s Museum of Houston.
Admission to the 1 p.m. showing is free but attendees were requested to make a reservation. Along with the movie, guests will also have complementary admission to the Children’s Museum after the screening. Special appearances will be made by Smash the Horse of the Houston Mounted Patrol. Vouchers for free cookies and milk from the museum café will also be distributed. Each guest will also receive a rubber bracelet with bearing the phrase, “Level the Playing Field”.
“These events provide a real opportunity for engagement with the community,” said Monte Osburn, a spokesman for the Mostyn Moreno Foundation. “Solutions to issues affecting children with disabilities require a lot of effort from everyone. If we can get parents to come out and enjoy a movie with their children while discussing a few of the challenges associated with raising children with disabilities, we’ll have done a great thing.”
Guests to the screening will receive discounted parking. Parents will also be offered information on discussing disabilities with their children. Reservations for the Sunday screening have already been allocated. However, the Mostyn Moreno Foundation has added more screenings to be held the following day. Reservations for the extra screenings can be found by following the instructions to the ReelAbilities website below.
“We’re really excited there has been so much interest,” Osburn added. “It’s a great movie with a great message and we can’t wait to share in that experience with some great kids.”
Additional viewings of the Dreamworks classic will be held on February 10th at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Metropolitan Multi-Service Center on West Gray. Information will still be available to parents though additional benefits, such as complementary admission to the children’s museum, will not be offered.
