CEDAR SPRINGS, MI — The Kent Theatre presents “View from the Vault #1 — The Films of Weston Woods”

The Cedar Springs Theatre Association (CSTA) is proud to present “View from the Vault #1 — The Films of Weston Woods.” This presentation is the first installment in a series of programming to be created from our growing classic film archive at the Kent Theatre, located at 8 N. Main St. in Cedar Springs.

The play dates of the show are Sat. June 4th and Sun. June 5th 2005, two showing each day at 2 & 4pm. Tickets for the show are $5.00 each. Funding raised from this event will benefit the Kent Theatre Audio/Visual fund and the Cedar Springs Public Library’s summer reading program. We hope you will join us in what we expect to be a memorial and wonderfully fun event for all.

For 50 years, Weston Woods Studios has been the principal innovator in the translation of picture books into the audiovisual media. Their adaptations are faithful reflections of classic children’s picture books designed to motivate beginning, struggling, reluctant and limited English language proficient readers to WANT to read. The Weston Woods film materials provide an alternative reading experience that is inspiring, enriching and fun.

Weston Woods' success over the years has largely been due to the wonderful quality of the books on which their productions are based. Additionally, Weston Woods’s production team has sought out the best animators, composers and narrators whose talents have contributed a high level of artistic creativity that has brought award-winning stories to life for children.

The films to be presented are a wonderful collection of short 5 to 15 minute animated short stories by acclaimed children authors, such as:
“REALLY ROSIE Starring the Nutshell Kids” (Featuring the music of Carol King) & “WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE” by Maurice Sendak
