The Tryon Palace Children’s Summer Movies Series Presents: Matilda

“Matilda,” the 1996 film adaptation of a work by Roald Dahl, tells the story of Matilda Wormwood, a gifted girl forced to put up with a crude, distant father and mother. Worse, Agatha Trunchbull, the evil principal at Matilda's school, is a terrifyingly strict bully. However, when Matilda realizes she has hidden power, she begins to defend her friends from Trunchbull's wrath and fight back against her unkind parents.

"Matilda" is sponsored by The Next Chapter Books & Art! 

Doors open at 5:30 PM; the movie will begin at 6 PM. Join us before the movie for an awe-inspiring performance of Magic by Luther to get you in the enchanting spirit!

This film is rated PG and runs approximately 1 hr 42 min.
