BIG ARTS will host a Family Movie Night on Dec. 5 at 7 p.m. in its Christensen Performance Hall, showing the critically-acclaimed Australian children’s film titled “H is for Happiness.”

“H is for Happiness” is a joyful, fun and meaningful film about the power of optimism and the resilience of the human spirit in overcoming life’s obstacles. It follows the story of Candice Phee, a girl with boundless optimism and a unique view of the world, who after being inspired by a strange new boy at school, sets out to mend her broken family.

“H is for Happiness” won the MIFF 2019 Top 10 Narrative Feature Films — Audience Award and Cinefest OZ, Australia’s largest cash film prize. It features an engaging 13-year-old Australian actress, Daisy Axon, in her first leading roll. Despite being a newcomer, Daisy has received praise from across the industry for her unforgettably vibrant performance.

BIG ARTS is practicing the highest standards of safety during this challenging time. All visitors are required to wear masks, and it asks that visitors are mindful of physical distancing. With physical distancing precautions in mind, there will only be approximately 200 seats available for the showing.

In addition, BIG ARTS has enhanced its air filtration system, all surfaces are wiped down between use, a professional sanitation fogger is being used after each gathering, and there are hand sanitation “stations” throughout the ground floor.

The price of admission for ages 17 and under is a canned good or nonperishable food item to be donated to F.I.S.H. of Sanibel-Captiva; the food items can be dropped off in the BIG ARTS box office in exchange for a ticket. The price of admission for adults is $5 per person. Tickets can only be arranged by calling 239-395-0900 or dropping off food item at the box office.
