Vail Valley family film series ends on a ‘Bolt’
Vail, CO Colorado
VAIL VALLEY, Colorado – The Vilar Performing Arts Center family film series will conclude Wednesday night with a screening of the new animated classic “Bolt” at 6:30 p.m. in Colorado’s Vail Valley. There also will be a dog-training demonstration and costume contest starting at 6 p.m. The entire evening is free of charge.
Bolt, an American White Shepherd, has un-knowingly lived his whole life on the set of an action TV show where he fights the powers of evil, and through the magic of Hollywood, actually believes he has superpowers. His owner, Penny, the co-star of the show, is rescued week after week by her fearless and adoring hound, Bolt.
When separated from the studio by accident, Bolt is thrust into the real world and must find his way home, not knowing that his superpowers were all staged. Bolt soon meets an alley cat named Mittens and a hamster named Rhino, and the threesome embarks on a cross-country journey back to Hollywood. The adventure forces Bolt to accept reality and discover his true self as an everyday dog. “Bolt” features the voices of John Travolta, Miley Cyrus and Malcolm McDowell as Bolt’s on-screen nemesis, Dr. Calico.
Prior to the movie screening, dog trainer Mark Ruark of Wags and Whiskers will be in the Vilar Center lobby for a demonstration. Learn tips from the pro, who’s often referred to as the Vail Valley’s “dog whisperer.”
The demonstration will be followed by a costume contest, with prizes awarded by the Beaver Creek Merchants Association. Dress as your favorite movie character, superhero or anything that you’d like.
Seating for the free Vilar Center family film series is on a first come, first served basis. For more information, call the Vilar box office at 970-845-TIXS (8497).
