Movie Madness in the Park: Homeward Bound - San Tan
San Tan Mountain Regional Park
Enjoy a movie inside the air conditioned Nature Center: Homeward Bound follows three household pets as they travel across mountains and plains on their way to find their owners. A misunderstanding leads the animals to mistakenly believe that they have been abandoned by their loved ones, when in reality they have been left in the care of a friend while the family has moved from the country to the city for the father to take a temporary assignment. All three pets can talk, and they bicker and crack jokes as they set off on a truly incredible journey chock full of misadventures as they wend their way back to their owners. Bring a brown-bag dinner or snacks. Curl up in the chair or on the floor with a blanket and pillow. *No pets, please.
