Hollywood comes to the Unitarian Church of Los Alamos this weekend as the Rev. John Cullinan begins his third annual “Summer Blockbusters” sermon series.
Using film as the chosen text for his sermons, Cullinan explores what people can learn about their lives from recent — and not so recent — popular movies.
Past sermons in the series have explored themes of fathers and sons in Tim Burton’s “Big Fish,” grace in “Where the Wild Things Are,” and xenophobia in “Avatar.”
This year’s series opens this weekend with Pixar’s 2009 animated movie, “Up.” The church will hold a “Dinner and a Movie Night” at 6 p.m. Saturday, with a community dinner.
This week’s dinner will be held as a benefit for the local running of the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.
Local Relay team members will prepare and serve the dinner, with a donation of $10 per adult and $5 per child. A showing of “Up” will follow dinner at approximately 7:30 p.m. The movie is free.
On Sunday, using clips from “Up,” Cullinan will preach on themes from the movie during the 10 a.m. service.
