Join Burnaby Public Library for the film screening of Up.
78-year-old Carl Fredricksen used to enjoy his modest life as a balloon seller when his adventure-loving wife Ellie was still alive. After she passed away, Carl was left with his memories and the awareness that they never made their dream journey to Paradise Falls in South America. When well-meaning officials consign Carl to Shady Oaks Retirement Home, he rigs thousands of helium balloons to his house and floats away. He soon discovers that Russell, a Wilderness Explorer Scout, has stowed away. In the tropical jungle, Carl and Russell find more than they bargained for, but more importantly they discover that they need each other.*
