Rio (Autism friendly screening)

In the heart of Rio de Janeiro, follow the captivating journey of Blu, a baby macaw accidentally transported from Brazil to the USA. Raised with love by a girl named Linda, Blu grows into an intelligent bird who doesn’t fly. But destiny intervenes when Tulio, a quirky Brazilian ornithologist, reveals that Blu is the last male of his species. Jewel, a female macaw, awaits him back in Rio. Together, they must save their kind. Join us for an enchanting open-air cinema experience as Blu and Jewel’s adventure unfolds against the vibrant backdrop of Carnival!
