Movie Day

Join us on Monday, May 23, at Heartland Senior Services, 205 S. Walnut Ave. in Ames for the movie “Free Willy,” starring Bindi Irwin and Beau Bridges, beginning at 12:30 p.m. The movie is free, and popcorn and refreshments will be provided.

Nature-loving Australian Kirra is spending the summer with her grandfather in South Africa when she makes a remarkable discovery. Swimming in a small lagoon next to her grandfather’s dilapidated ocean-side amusement park is a baby orca that seems to have lost its way. Determined to help her new friend get back to his pod, Kirra names the orca Willy and makes it her mission to reunite him with his family.
