Family Film Double Feature Movie Days


Katy ISD will be closed on Thursday, April 21 and Friday, April 22 due to continued flooding. Maud Marks Library, however, is open and we know you may need to get those kids out of the house for a little while. And we've got your prescription for cabin fever. Not one, but two Double Feature Movie Days! On Thursday at 2 PM we'll "soar away on a magic carpet ride of nonstop enchantment in [one of] the most spectacular animated adventures of all time" with Aladdin (running time: 90 minutes). Then, at 3:30 PM we'll return to the city of Agrabah where the evil Jafar tries to take his revenge on Aladdin and his friends in The Return of Jafar (running time: 66 minutes).
