    June 6, 2019, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM @ Tybee Post Theater

    Two years ago, we brought you the heartwarming saga of Bailey, the cute pup who lived many lives. Well, Bailey is back in this new nostalgic melodrama, now as an aging St. Bernard known as Buddy, who lives on an idyllic Michigan farm with his beloved owner Ethan (Dennis Quaid), Ethan’s wife Hannah (Marg Helgenberger), and CJ -- Ethan's young granddaughter. When CJ's mother decides to take her away, Bailey gets reincarnated into a puppy and embarks on a lifelong quest to watch over the girl. Thus begins Bailey’s adventure through multiple lives filled with love, friendship and devotion as he, CJ and CJ’s best friend Trent experience joy and heartbreak, music and laughter, and few really good belly rubs. It’s shameless, yet satisfying, and clearly aimed at young girls and ‘tweens. So come on out and watch the kickoff to our Summer Family Friendly Movies Series. Our Summer Family Friendly Movies Series is sponsored by First Chatham Bank.
