Saturday Movie Matinee: Matilda

Saturday, May 5, 4:30pm.
In celebration of the Hudson Children’s Book Festival, the Hudson Area Library’s Tween Advisory Council will host a free screening of Matilda (1996).

Matilda is the feature adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic story of Matilda Wormwood (Mara Wilson), a gifted girl forced to put up with a crude, distant father (Danny DeVito) and mother (Rhea Perlman). Worse, Agatha Trunchbull (Pam Ferris), the evil principal at Matilda’s school, is a terrifyingly strict bully. However, when Matilda realizes she has the power of telekinesis, she begins to defend her friends from Trunchbull’s wrath and fight back against her unkind parents.

Hudson Area Library’s Tween Advisory Council, is a committee made up of youth (ages 8-12) who take on a leadership role in creating and hosting library events and workshops for their peers.


This program is free and is open to tweens and families in the community! The council will also be providing free popcorn, treats and door prizes! For more information: please email youth@hudsonarealibrary.org or call 518-828-1792
