Free family film at Vilar in Beaver Creek: "Imagine That"

BEAVER CREEK – What if your child’s imagination was the secret to your success? What if a security blanket and an invisible friend gave you the upper hand in business? Find out Wednesday night when the family film “Imagine That” comes to the Vilar Performing Arts Center screen as part of the theater’s Free Family Film Series.

Scheduled for a 6:30 p.m. show time for the movie, families will also have the opportunity to help local high school student Sarah Cochran as she works to raise money for her “Share Our Strength’s Great American Bake Sale” project. Beginning at 5:30 p.m., kids will be able to decorate their own cupcakes, with a suggested donation of $3 per cupcake. The Great American Bake Sale is a national campaign that mobilizes Americans to end childhood hunger by holding bake sales in their communities.

Also new this week, the Beaver Creek Merchants will join in prior to the film for a summer fun family fashion show. Due to this addition, the weekly costume contest will not be held.

Evan Danielson (Eddie Murphy) is a successful financial executive who has more time for his Blackberry than his seven-year-old daughter (Yara Shahidi) and even less time for her imaginary friends and security blanket. When Evan’s absentminded attention to Olivia’s far-fetched stories, combined with her ill-timed use of some important meeting notes as arts and crafts materials causes a huge blowup between father and daughter, it also reveals an uncanny window into the financial world.
