West Ponce Free Movie Night March 23

West Ponce de Leon Avenue will be closed off along the 300 block (think Mellow Mushroom area) and turned into an open-air movie theater for one night on Friday, March 23. We’ll be showing Wonder for free at 6:45 p.m., but the fun starts at 6 p.m. with trivia and prizes.
Come out early to shop, or grab a delicious dinner before showtime. Check Facebook for late-breaking special offers from West Ponce restaurants and shops.
Snag your spot on West Ponce de Leon and bring chairs and blankets to keep cozy.
Wonder will light up the inflatable screen at 6:45 p.m. Based on the New York Times bestseller, Wonder tells the incredibly inspiring and heartwarming story of Auggie Pullman, a boy with facial differences who enters fifth grade, attending a mainstream elementary school for the first time.
