Come for free movie followed by emergency preparedness tips 

The City of Marysville invites you to a free showing of “Twister,” the acclaimed 1996 film starring Helen Hunt, Bill Paxton, Jami Gertz and Cary Elwes as a group of storm chasers researching tornadoes during a severe outbreak in Oklahoma. The movie won the BAFTA Award for Best Special Visual Effects and the MTV Movie Award for Best Action Sequence.

Come join the fun Thursday, Sept. 12, at the Marysville Opera House, 1225 3rd St. Doors open at 6 p.m. and movie starts at 6:30 p.m., followed by a brief presentation and discussion with the city’s Emergency Management team. Open to all ages, the film is recommended for those 6 and older. Popcorn and refreshments are available for a suggested donation. 

Why Disaster Movie Night? “This is not only a fun evening watching a great movie, it is an opportunity for our community to come together to connect and talk about disaster preparedness,” said Jenn Brown, Marysville’s Emergency Preparedness Coordinator. 

“People often think that a community’s resilience is measured by how it responds to an event. This is not true,” Brown continued. “Research shows that the most resilient communities are those who put in the time and effort to mitigate against the next event, prepare themselves with education and supplies, protect themselves and their property, and then respond when the need arises.

“Those communities who put time and effort into the entire process are able to restore, rebuild and overcome as a community faster than those communities who do not.”
