    Lilo & Stitch movie poster

    Location: Meeting Room

    Join us to watch the Disney classic Hawaii movie Lilo & Stitch!

    The result of an illegal experiment in genetic mutation, Experiment #626, is so horrifyingly hostile that it’s been locked up by its inventors.  It escapes to Earth where Lilo, a young Hawaiian girl, mistakes it for a strange dog, adopts it, and renames it Stitch.  As Stitch becomes part of Lilo’s unusual family life, Lilo’s innocence and the aloha spirit of the Islands confuse and ultimately civilize the creature.

    The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) has rated this movie PG.  Parental guidance is suggested.  Young children must be accompanied by a parent or adult caregiver. 

    Mahalo to the Friends of Kaimuki Public Library for sponsoring this event.
