Four Actors to Appear at ‘Boxcar Children’ Movie Screening

Boxcar KidsAlbert Whitman & Company will host a book drive by screening the new animated Boxcar Children movie. This event is set to take place on August 16, 2014 at the Pickwick Theatre in Park Ridge, IL starting 12 p.m.

According to the press release, the gift of one used book covers admission for two people but note that seating is first-come, first-serve. The donated books will then be given to a Chicago-based literacy organization Open Books. The first 500 guests will take home a special goodie bag.

The two co-directors, Dan Chuba and Mark Dippe, and cast members Joey King, Zachary Gordon, Mackenzie Foy, and Jadon Sand will sit for a Q&A after the movie. After that session, the actors will pose for photos and sign autographs for 100 child attendees. Follow this link for more details about this event.
