Rating: PG
Length: 118 mins

Opening Day family fundraiser screening of THE LION KING with The Orpheum donating all profits to OIC Cambodia, an organisation that aims to grow speech therapy in Cambodia.

OIC Cambodia believes that communication is the heart of being human and that every person deserves the right to communicate and be understood.

In Cambodia, it is estimated that 600,000 people – approximately 1 in 25 need speech therapy, and yet there is not one single Cambodian Speech Therapist in the country, and services to help them are nearly non-existent.

This means that hundreds and thousands of children cannot communicate with friends or family, go to school, or have potential jobs. An equal number, due to muscle weakness, cannot swallow safely meaning food and liquid can enter their lungs, endangering their lives.

OIC’s goal is to establish sustainable speech therapy services in Cambodia that will improve the lives of children, families and communities, and in many cases save lives.

Please join us this school holidays for this special family screening of the Lion King, and help us to raise funds to improve the lives of over half a million people without a voice.

Director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
