MT. VERNON — The final installment of the Granada Classic Kids Matinee for the season will be held Saturday with a showing of A Cinderella Story."This will be the last free matinee of the season, and as ever, one lucky child will win a $50 savings account via a drawing before the start of the movie," stated Barbara D'Arcy, president of the Granada Center for the Performing Arts. D'Arcy said the program will be continued again in the fall. Released in 2004, A Cinderella Story stars Hilary Duff and Chad Michael Murray. It is a modern twist on the classic Cinderella tale, with Sam Montgomery exploited by her wicked stepmother. She has a Internet pen pal whom she meets at a school dance and fall in love, but their different worlds keep them apart.
