A sensitive teenager learns to navigate the soaring highs and perilous lows of adolescence in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, a powerful and affecting coming-of-age story based on the wildly popular young adult novel by Stephen Chbosky. Starring Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson and the Olympians), Emma Watson (the Harry Potter franchise) and Ezra Miller (We Need to Talk About Kevin, Another Happy Day), The Perks of Being a Wallflower captures the complexities of growing up with uncommon grace, humor and compassion.

It¹s 1991 and academically precocious, socially awkward Charlie (Logan Lerman) is a wallflower, always watching from the sidelines, until a pair of charismatic seniors take him under their wing. Beautiful, free-spirited Sam (Emma Watson) and her fearless stepbrother, Patrick (Ezra Miller), shepherd Charlie through new friendships, first love, burgeoning sexuality, bacchanalian parties, midnight screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and the quest for the perfect song. At the same time, his English teacher, Mr. Anderson (Paul Rudd) introduces him to the world of literature, sparking his dreams of becoming a writer.

But even as Charlie thrives in his new, more grown-up world, the pain of his past‹which includes, his best friend Michael¹s recent suicide and the accidental death of a beloved aunt‹lurks just below the surface. As his older friends plan to leave home for college, Charlie¹s precarious equilibrium begins to crumble, and at the root of his sadness is a shocking revelation.

Gates open at 7pm and screenings start at sundown, approximately 8.30pm.
