One of Walt Disney's most beloved movies, released in 1960, Swiss Family Robinson is the story of a Swiss family en route to New Guinea that is shipwrecked on a deserted tropical island. Forced to remain on the island because of ship damage and local pirates, they build a huge tree house and embark on exciting adventures exploring the island and its wildlife.
The movie will be fun for the whole family. Picnics are encouraged beginning at 7:30 p.m. Bring your own picnic and chairs or blanket.
Parking is available at neighboring businesses: The Vine, Taylor House Interiors, Simmer & Soak, Cloth + Label, and SunTrust Bank.
The Old Stables Corner, at the intersection of Frederica and Sea Island roads, was saved from development when the Land Trust purchased it in 2010. For more than 50 years, it had been the site of the Sea Island Stables. When the stables moved north to the Lawrence Road roundabout, the 2.3-acre parcel was approved for commercial development. Instead, the Land Trust purchased the parcel to preserve the landmark corner and its canopy of 58 trees, including 49 magnificent live oaks.
