The Kirby will screen “Yogi Bear” on Friday, Nov. 2 at 7 p.m. Its Jellystone Park’s 100th anniversary, but all is not well. Attendance is down and Mayor Brown wants to close the park and sell the land to an amusement park company. If the park is closed, Yogi Bear and Boo Boo will lose their home. They join forces with Ranger Smith to save Jellystone from closing forever. Yogi must really prove in this endeavor that he is “smarter than the average bear.”
