Benefit for the Wimberley Birding Society at the Corral Theatre: Ponyo
Another great movie choice to delight everyone, benefiting Wimberley's birding friends.

Once again, thanks to Mary Anderson of the Corral Theater in Wimberley, the Wimberley Birding Society will show a movie starting at "dark-thirty" on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings, September 11, 12 and 13, 2009. All proceeds after expenses will go to the Patsy Glenn Bird Refuge, our nature sanctuary. The Refuge has benefited from this generous gesture for several years now, and this year's movie is one you won't want to miss.

Ponyo is from acclaimed Japanese animé master Hayao Miyazaki.

Rolling Stone says, "The delicate colors and hand-drawn, proudly 2-D images are breathtaking. Ponyo, voiced by Noah Cyrus, is a goldfish with a human face. Sosuke, a five-year-old boy, finds her in a jar. Then magic turns her into a human girl, throwing the natural order out of balance, along with his parents (Matt Damon, Tina Fey) and hers (Liam Neeson, Cate Blanchett). Miyazaki works marvels. Sit back and behold."

Admission will be $5 and proceeds will go to support bird club projects. Those under 4 and over 85 will be admitted free and numerous bird-related prizes will be given away at intermission. Show time will be approximately 8:15 p.m. nightly at the outdoor theatre.

The Corral Theater is located just off Ranch Road 3237 on Flight Acres Road. There's seating on benches and metal chairs or feel free to bring your own folding chairs. Cold drinks and hot popcorn will be available. Come early to avoid the rush.
