Film screening to benefit Odyssey of the Mind team

The Leelanau Enterprise reports that there will be a pair of benefit screenings of “The Namesake” on Friday (May 11) and Sunday (May 13) at The Bay Theater in Suttons Bay. Note: The Namesake is rated PG-13.  Adults & teenagers only-this is NOT a kid’s movie

A team of six fourth and fifth graders from Leland captured the OM State Championship in their category last month in Traverse City and will compete against children from throughout the U.S. and 50 foreign countries later this month on the campus of Michigan State University.

The Bay Theater will screen the movie “The Namesake” on May 11 at 6 p.m. and May 13 at 2 p.m. as a fundraiser for the local OM team. The movie is rated PG-13. Tickets are $15 each and are on sale at the Leland Public School office, Kejara’s Bridge coffee house in Lake Leelanau, the Leland Mercantile, the Pennington Collection in Northport, and Hansen Foods in Suttons Bay.
