thefridacinema On Sunday September 13 at 1pm, join us for a special screening of the heartwarming and inspiring new documentary BATKID BEGINS!

One child. One wish. Millions touched. Who would have thought a 5-year-old boy who fought leukemia would transform a city and a nation for a day?

BATKID BEGINS is a documentary that takes you back to November 15th, 2013, the day San Francisco turned into Gotham City, and the day thousands of volunteers came from near and far to help make Miles Scott’s wish come true. More than a billion people took to social media to cheer on BatKid – even President Obama! In all, the #SfBatKid and #BatKid hashtags reached more than 1.84 Billion people on Twitter and Instagram. Join us as we celebrate a moment in history when the world came together to make one boy’s dream come true.

A portion of every ticket sold to this special screening will be donated to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. “If you have the opportunity to see Batkid, I encourage you to buy a ticket. It won’t change our world. But it could change us. Then we can improve the world. Batman would like that.” – Dann Gire, Chicago Daily Herald “‘Begins’ journeys into the heart of charity and community support, clearing away the ugliness of the world for 80 minutes to bask in the glow of what was intended to be a block-wide event that eventually snowballed into a global phenomenon.” – Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com “The film isn’t really about young Miles (whose cancer is today in remission) but about all of us, about our bottomless capacity to do good and our shared love of little kids, big dreams, and Batman.” – Kyle Smith, New York Post

makeawishisrael #throughbackthursday to Tamir's wish that turned into an once-in-a-lifetime surprise. After receiving his viola, he played along with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra at one of their special concerts.
Have a magical weekend everyone!

malhales Just watched this, what a great #documentary! Who can see this and not smile and cry at the same time? #Brilliant

One child. One wish. Millions touched. Who would have thought a 5-year-old boy who fought #leukemia would transform a city and a nation for a day? No one. Not his family. Not his friends. Not the thousands of #volunteers who came from near and far to help make his wish come true. But it did.

#BatkidBegins is a documentary that takes you back to November 15th, 2013, the day #SanFrancisco turned into #GothamCity, and the day the internet was nice. More than a billion people took to social media to cheer on BatKid, even President Obama! In all, the #SfBatKid and #BatKid hashtags reached more than 1.84 Billion people on Twitter and Instagram. This wish and this little #capedcrusader resonated with so many people, including us, and we wanted to find out why. #Gotham #makeawishfoundation #make-a-wish
