“Cars 3” Children’s Movie at Stockton Springs Community Library Friday, February 16th

Stockton Springs Community Library (SSCL) will present a Children’s Movie “Cars 3” on Friday, February 16th at 6:30 pm.

“Cars 3” is a 2017 American 3D computer-animated sports comedy-drama film produced by Pixar and released by Walt Disney Pictures. The film is the sequel to Cars and Cars 2. The returning voices of Owen Wilson, Bonnie Hunt and Larry the Cable Guy are joined by Cristela Alonzo, Chris Cooper, Kerry Washington, and Lea Delaria, in addition to a dozen NASCAR personalities.


Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers led by arrogant hotshot Jackson Storm, the legendary Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) is suddenly sidelined and pushed from the sport he loves. To get back on track, he’ll need the help of eager young racing technician Cruz Ramirez, inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet and a few unexpected twists and turns of fate. This high-octane hit is fully loaded with unforgettable characters.

Come enjoy “Cars 3” in the comfort of the Stockton Springs Community Library. Movies are always more funwhen you watch them with others!

This free event will include movie snacks and surprises.
