— Free family movies draw 3,134

The YouthThink Free Family Movies, in conjunction with The City of The Dalles and Columbia Cinema, drew a total attendance of 3,134 people in January and February, according to a news release by YouthThink.

The average attendance per movie was 392 children and adults and the total amount of food donated was 3,411 pounds.
