We Apologize for Friday’s Family Movie “A Better Life”

On behalf of Project Safe Way and the Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation, we would like to apologize for the presentation of Friday’s
Summer Series movie, “A Better Life.”

We try to provide entertainment for all ages of our youth, and felt the message was a good one and relative to our community. Unfortunately, due to the strong language used, we had to pull it shortly after the start and replace it with a more appropriate movie. We apologize first to the families who had hoped to see this film, but mostly to families who count on us to provide family-friendly movies. We will be double-checking all of our remaining films to assure you that they will be safe viewing for youth of all ages.
We hope you will continue to join us on Fridays for the remaining Summer Series movies.Our next film will be “Cars 2,” this Friday,  July 27th.

Thank you,
Project Safe Way
Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation
