ELPL Monday Matinee: Batkid Begins
East Lansing Public Library, 950 Abbot Rd, East Lansing, MI 48823, United States
Batkid Begins
"One child. One wish. Millions touched. Who would have thought a 5-year-old boy who fought leukemia would transform a city and a nation for a day? No one. Not his family. Not his friends. Not the thousands of volunteers who came from near and far to help make his wish come true. But it did.
Batkid Begins is a documentary that takes you back to November 15th, 2013, the day San Francisco turned into Gotham City, and the day the internet was nice. More than a billion people took to social media to cheer on BatKid, even President Obama! In all, the #SfBatKid and #BatKid hashtags reached more than 1.84 Billion people on Twitter and Instagram. This wish and this little caped crusader resonated with so many people, including us, and we wanted to find out why."
October 2015 will be the last month for the Monday Movie Matinee program. Starting November 1 the program will be on hiatus while the library is renovated. The program will return after the renovation is completed in 2016. Want to know more about the renovation of the East Lansing Public Library? Visit: www.elpl.org/renovate
