Elf at JPT Newport for The MLK Center
Thanks to our sponsor Memorial Funeral Home

Come join us for our annual viewing of Elf at the Jane Pickens Theatre! The only “cost” is grocery donations for the Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center, so please bring any non-perishable food items that you might have. Everyone could use a laugh around the Holidays, this is a great way to begin a new tradition and to reach out to help others at the same time. There will be a prize for the best costume. Bring your children. Bring your parents. Bring the whole family. Bring friends. Or just come yourself! We’ll meet you at the door! All attendees in costume will get a raffle ticket to win a great prize, and two will be chosen before the film (one adult and one child!)

If you can’t be seated for the movie, you can still donate food to help people in need in Newport County. Buddy the Elf will be on hand with his fellow elves for curbside food donations.

Doors will open at 1:00 showtime is at 2:00

The now-classic holiday film elf- starring a hilarious Will Ferrell alongside Hollywood movie royalty James Caan. Elf has in recent years reached the status of not-to-be-missed Christmastime film. Directed by Jon Favreau (who also shares co-writer credit), elf is the touching and side-splitting story of a north pole toymaker who sets off to the Big Apple in search of his father.

This community event will benefit the MLK Community Center- counts among their many missions and programs hunger services for local families in need of assistance, especially around the holidays. The 501(c)(3) also runs a daily breakfast program, a food pantry and a monthly food delivery program called Food 2 Friends. They are a vital organization to Newport County.
