    Kids and parents are invited to join your South Branch Library for a great mid-morning movie.

This film is rated PG for macabre and suggestive humor, and some action, and has a run time of 1 hour and 26 minutes. Light snacks will be served, or feel free to bring your own snacks to the show. For additional information, contact staff at 325-698-7565.

In this film, after the events of “Captain America: Civil War,” T’Challa, heir to the hidden but advanced kingdom of Wakanda, must step forward to lead his people into a new future and must confront a challenger from his country’s past. This film is rated PG-13 for prolonged sequences of action violence, and a brief rude gesture, and has a run time of 2 hours and 14 minutes. Light snacks will be served, or feel free to bring in your own snacks and food for the movie. For additional information, contact staff at 325-698-7565.
