Rockland — The Rockland Public Library presents a 10th anniversary screening of "Up" (2009, USA) on Thursday, Nov. 14, at 6:30 p.m. "Up," a film for all ages, tells the story of Carl Fredricksen, a retired balloon salesman, who is part rascal, part dreamer and ready for his last chance at high-flying excitement. Tying thousands of balloons to his house, Carl sets off to the lost world of his childhood dreams.

Unbeknownst to Carl, Russell, an overeager 8-year-old Wilderness Explorer who has never ventured beyond his backyard, is in the wrong place at the wrong time — Carl’s front porch! The world’s most unlikely duo reach new heights and meet fantastic friends like Dug, a dog with a special collar that allows him to speak, and Kevin, a rare 13-foot tall flightless bird. Stuck together in the wilds of the jungle, Carl realizes that sometimes life’s biggest adventures aren’t the ones you set out looking for.

The film is rated PG and runs 1 hr. 36 min. The story is written and co-directed by Pete Docter and Bob Peterson.

The Rockland Public Library is located at 80 Union St. This event is free and open to the public.
