The Spring Break Movie Afternoon Theatre will present a free screening of the PG-rated movie "Hop" for families on April 10 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the library located at 3600 Norbridge, Castro Valley.
According to an on-line You Tube trailer's description of the movie, it blends state of the art animation with live action "Hop," it says, "is a comedy about E.B. (voiced by Russell Brand), the teenage son of the Easter Bunny. On the eve of taking over the family business, E.B. leaves for Hollywood in pursuit of his dream of becoming a drummer. He encounters Fred (James Marsden), an out-of-work slacker with his own lofty goals, who accidentally hits E.B. with his car. Feigning injury, E.B. manipulates Fred into providing him shelter, and Fred finds himself with the world's worst houseguest. The film is helmed by Tim Hill, director of the blockbuster Alvin and the Chipmunks and produced by Chris Meledandri's Illumination Entertainment (Despicable Me)."
