The Learning with Disabilities Association of Hawaiʻi hosts a movie night on Maui as part of its 7th Annual Traveling Mini-Conference.
“The Other Sister,” a full-length feature film and romantic comedy will be shown at 7 p.m. tonight, Thursday, Sept. 18, 2014, at the Consolidated Theatre located upstairs at the Queen Kaʻaahumanu Shopping Center.
Event organizers say the movie highlights the importance of siblings of individuals with disabilities, and is open to the public free of charge.
The event features food, prizes and giveaways, including a free organization t-shirt to the first 50 people in attendance.
