Catch Some 'Teenflix' at the Levitt in Westport

WESTPORT, Conn. -- "Teenflix," the annual outdoor movie series hosted by the Westport Youth Commission, is coming to the Levitt Pavilion in August, Coordinator of Youth Services Elaine Daignault announced.

Starting Aug. 1, a movie will be shown every Monday through Aug. 22, Daignault said. The series is now in its seventh year, and teens of all ages are invited to screenings.

"All movies are free and begin at 8:30 p.m. Snacks will be available for purchase during the event and proceeds will go to support future youth programming," Daignault said.

The series, also sponsored by Toquet Hall and the Westport Library, will kick off with the Westport Youth Film Festival's "Best of 2011 Films." For details, contact the Westport Arts Center at (203) 222-7070 or www.wyff.net.

On Aug. 8, the PG-13 comedy "Accepted"—a story about a high school slacker who is rejected by every college he applies to and opts to create his own—will be shown.

The classic thriller "Jaws" screens on Aug.15. Directed by Steven Spielberg, the movie depicts a great white shark menacing a small island community.

On Aug. 22, "Toy Story 3" will be featured. This Oscar-winning, animated film by Disney-Pixar follows Andy's toys as they are mistakenly delivered to a day-care center when Andy packs up to go to college. This film is rated G.

In the event of rain, the Aug. 8, 15 and 22 showings will be held in the McManus Room at the Westport Library.

Anyone interested in volunteering to help with "Teenflix" or interested in future youth-driven events should contact Elaine Daignault at (203) 341-1165 or via email at elained@westportct.gov.
