Rated PG and runs 86 minutes.

Members of the mysterious and spooky Addams family — Gomez, Morticia, Pugsley, Wednesday, Uncle Fester, and Grandmama — are readily preparing for a big visit from their even creepier relatives. But trouble soon arises when shady TV personality Margaux Needler realizes that the Addams’ eerie hilltop mansion is standing in the way of her dream to sell all the houses in the neighborhood. Join us on Thursday, January 23 at 7 pm.

Refreshments will be served.
