Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus has announced that the County, in partnership with the Orange County Think Differently Committee and the CFOS – Friends of Older Adults fund, will host a free movie event featuring the film “The Peanut Butter Falcon” at 2 p.m. on Tues., Feb. 25 at the Paramount Theatre, 17 South St., in Middletown. Doors will open at 1 p.m.
The movie screening is being offered to celebrate the launch of Orange County’s “Think Differently” initiative, modeled after the program in neighboring Dutchess County. The movie depicts the unlikely friendship that develops between Zak, a young man with Down syndrome who runs away from a nursing home to chase his dream of becoming a professional wrestler, and Tyler, a small-time outlaw on the run.
