It’s time for another intergenerational Reel Escape Audio Description Movie Club with your blind and low vision friends. This time around, our movie club gathering will be a hybrid with an option for campers from the EHC Adult session to call in as a group from camp. Our featured film will start after we get a chance to learn a little bit about who has joined us. After the film, we will have space to discuss it or just connect with LightHouse friends.

The film for our June gathering has not been selected yet and we hope you can help us with that. Below you will find a couple of links, the first is to a survey where you can share your vote for the film. Followed by a set of links that you can use to register for the event.
