MONTVILLE, NJ - OneMontville announces a community screening of the new film, “Love, Simon” in coordination with MSLstories.com. The screening will take place on Sunday, May 6 at the AMC Theaters in Wayne, NJ starting at 3:45pm. Tickets are available for $9 per person, and may be purchased through local businesses promoting the event. Tickets are currently available at Joe’s Pizzaria (185 Changebridge Rd. Montville) and Landauer Café (632 US-202, Towaco). The showing has been designated “Stigma Free” in conjunction with the Township’s Stigma Free Communities Task Force, formed in 2017 as a part of a Morris County-wide program.

Directed by Greg Birlanti and based on the best-selling novel, “Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda”, by Becky Albertalli, “Love, Simon” is a coming of age story with something for all teen and family audiences to enjoy. Simon Spier’s life growing up in the suburbs of Atlanta is a relatively quiet one. He’s got the loving family, awesome friends, and a pretty good grasp on the whole “high school” thing. But Simon’s also got a secret. When another student threatens to share it with the entire world, Simon embarks on a journey to embrace his identity and write the love story he deserves. With important messages on love, family, cyberbullying, and LGBTQ+ culture, it’s a heartfelt look at the world our teens encounter each day. 

Founded in 2015, OneMontville is a local non-profit organization dedicated to fostering unity in the Montville Township community by fostering a spirit of inclusivity and celebration of the diversity within Montville Township. OneMontville coordinates a number of educational and culturally rich programs, including the annualMartin Luther King Day of Respect and Community ServiceGreen In Day, where all community members wear and display green in support of Acceptance, Respect and Kindness;#OneMontvilleRocks where community members decorate rocks with messages of kindness and share them for others to find; movie events that encourage the community to #ShareKindness like the popular “Wonder” event last fall; and  upcoming lectures about diversity, courage and kindness.
