Des Moines…I’ll Make Me a World in Iowa invites you to join us for a free showing of Disney's ‘The Little Mermaid' on Tuesday, June 6th, 2023 at the Century 20 Theater located at 101 Jordan Creek Parkway, Bldg. 2000, West Des Moines IA 50266 at the Jordan Creek Town Center. Iowa’s African American Festival will present two free showings, one beginning at 6:25pm, and one at 8:15pm. Seating is limited. Tickets will be available by registration through Monday June 5 or until both showings are at capacity.
The June 6 two-show Community Night at The Movies is an opportunity to support the need for and celebrate the positive impact of Black characters in the entertainment world. The placemaking event will be a great occasion to watch the movie with other community patrons, have fun and fellowship.
Having the movie’s Princess Ariel portrayed by an African American young woman has been highly anticipated by many but in the Black community it is specially lauded. “Representation matters. Halle Bailey as ‘The Little Mermaid’ is an iconic cultural affirmation that recognizes the value of Black beauty.” says Betty Andrews, Executive Director of the organization which highlights African American arts, culture and contributions in Iowa. “We’re presenting this movie free of charge to the community because It is important that our daughters see their Black beauty centered, our sons need to see it, and people in the broader community need to experience it as normal.” Andrews said.
Disney’s The Little Mermaid is rated PG. Visit https://www.cinemark.com/movies/the-little-mermaid to learn more about the movie.
