The film, which airs at 2 p.m., is sponsored by the City’s Community of Character Committee and coincides with August’s character trait of “self-control.”
Appropriate for adults and children of all ages, this first of the Lassie movie series stars 11-year-old Elizabeth Taylor and Roddy McDowall. The public is encouraged to share stories following the screening about the positive influences their own pets have had in their life.
Character educators Elaine Portnoy and Bob Hayes will lead the discussion following the film, which will be shown on a theater-size screen with theater-style seating and surround-sound at 200 Civic Center, just across from the Mission Viejo Library.
