The Flicks@Night Film Series presents the animated/live action comedy Who Framed Roger Rabbit (PG) and the winners of the Second Annual MVMMS Filmmaker Contest on Friday, January 25, in the Melrose Veteran's Memorial Middle School Theater, 350 Lynn Fells Parkway, Melrose. The doors will open at 6:30 p.m. All attendees pay only $5.00 for the evening. Children 11 years and younger must be accompanied by an adult. The contest and the Film Series are organized by the Melrose Veterans' Memorial Middle School PTO Film Committee. Special thanks to the Melrose Recreation Department for sponsoring this event.
Before the feature film, we will screen several of the winning films produced by MVMMS students for the MVMMS Filmmaker Contest. The iraiders robotics team has donated an $100 prize for a film featuring robotics or machine shop safety in some way, and gift certificates donated by the PTO will be awarded to other winners. The films will be judged by the staff of the local cable access station, MMTV. The films must be no more than eight minutes long, and the deadline is Friday January 18. For more information on the contest go to the Melrose Middle School website and click on PTO. Applications are available at the Middle School office or online.
More About Melrose Veterans Memorial Middle School
The most modern public building in Melrose, the new Melrose Veterans Memorial Middle School (MVMMS) opened in 2007. Except for a handicapped ramp constructed in 1987 and a renovation of the auditorium completed in 1999, the original middle school - originally Melrose High School - had no significant renovations since it was built in 1933.
Today, under the stewardship of Principal Tom Brow, the middle schools offers 24 student clubs and activities and 14 intramural sports. The school was awarded a Spotlight School award by the New England League of Middle Schools in 2008.
