The Mayor’s Office on Asian and Pacific Islander Affairs will host our last movie night of the summer on September 29th in Chinatown Park! In celebration of the Mid-Autumn Festival, a harvest festival widely celebrate in East Asian countries, we will kick off this event with the following activities from 6:30 – 7:30 pm:
a Neighborhood Build with toy building bricks organized by the National Building Museum
calligraphy and a coloring station for children
a lantern assembly demonstration
moon cake (the festival’s signature pastry) and other snacks
free bike repairs
The movie will begin at around 7:30 pm when it gets dark.
Length: 1 hour 28 minutes
Fearful that her ailing father will be drafted into the Chinese military, Mulan takes his spot. She cleverly impersonates a man and goes off to train with fellow recruits. Accompanied by her dragon, Mushu, she uses her smarts to help ward off a Hun invasion, falling in love with a dashing captain along the way.
Admission is free, but please RSVP:
Guests are asked to bring their own blankets, chairs and bug spray if needed. There will be a portable restroom on site. This event is free and open to the public. Popcorn and popsicles will be provided.
