Ava DuVernay & Mayor Aja Brown Bring “A Wrinkle In Time” to Compton!

It was a fantastic day in Compton as Director Ava DuVernay and Mayor Aja Brown brought Disney’s “A Wrinkle In Time” to various middle schools around the city!  The kiddies were treated to lunch with popcorn & nachos, a special discussion between Ava the Mayor and a private screening of the film.

This was extra special because there are NO movie theaters in her hometown of Los Angeles… so DISNEY and Ava created a real movie cinema at the local Dollarhide Community Center!  300 kids were brought over to the center to experience a little bit of magic.  Way to go Ava… giving back is a wonderful thing!


Take a look as Ava talks about Oprah Winfrey in the film:


A Wrinkle In Time is inspired from a science fantasy novel written by Madeleine L’Engle, directed by Ava Duvernay. After the disappearance of her scientist father, three peculiar beings send Meg, her brother, and her friend to space in order to find him.

Watch the trailer and be sure to visit theaters March 9TH!!:
