Speaking for the trees

Fuzzy orange grouch closes film series


In Universal Pictures’ 2012 animated feature The Lorax, an innocent young love leads to the discovery of a strange world and an even stranger creature. The Lorax is the final free Movies in the Park presentation for the summer.

Twelve-year-old Ted (voiced by Zac Efron) wants to win the heart of Audrey (Taylor Swift). To do so, the boy must venture out of his artificial world (where even the air is a commodity) to find the mythical Lorax (Danny DeVito). And what’s more, Ted has to learn the Lorax’s story. The film is based on the illustrated children’s book by Dr. Seuss and reimagined by the creators of Despicable Me.

The free event starts at 8 p.m. today in Quakertown Park, 321 E. McKinney St. Attendees can enjoy a marshmallow roast and crafts, followed by the film at 9 p.m. on a giant screen.
