Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief

by

The Boise Public Schools Education Foundation and Boise Parks and Recreation puts on Movies Under the Stars, a monthly, free, family-friendly movie screening in Julia Davis Park.

This month, Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief will be projected at the Gene Harris Bandshell. The Lightning Thief is the first of a five-part book series centered on Greek mythology. Teenage protagonist Percy Jackson finds out that Greek gods still exist and that, in fact, he is the son of sea-god Poseidon.

If Perseus striking his sword through Medusa's neck, severing her snake-ridden head and carrying it back to King Polydectes isn't the type of imagery you want to send your kid to bed with, then The Lightning Thief will make a good, Greek mythology-heavy alternative.
