Penelope's Odyssey and Tilles Center for the Performing Arts work together to support children and their families impacted by pediatric illnesses. This collaboration helps foster family fun and builds childhood memories in a safe environment closed to the general public.

Private Movie Screenings

We are currently planning our private screening for a movie in the Spring of 2015.

In 2014 we held a private movie screening of Rio 2.  We provided drinks and popcorn to the children and their families at the Deep Park IMAX Theatre.

In 2013 we held a private movie screening of "Finding Nemo" at MovieLand Cinemas of Coram.

The kids really enjoyed the movie in the sterile, sniff free theater.  Also thanks to our wonderful donations the kids enjoyed a snack pack with Popcorn, Candy and a drink.  This event was in honor of Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month.  We thank MovieLand and our donors for such a great event.
