The curtain goes up tonight at the Marjorie Luke Theater for a special documentary about elephants and dangerous elephant rescues.
“Love and Bananas” helps uncover the plight of the Asian elephant in Thailand.
The emotionally-charged film depicts heart-wrenching details behind animal cruelty and the courage it takes to fight those responsible.
The movie focuses on conservationists who travel 500 miles across Thailand to free a blind, 70-year-old female elephant.
“Love and Bananas” starts at 7:00 p.m. Friday night at the Marjorie Luke Theatre on the campus of Santa Barbara Jr. High School at 721 E. Cota Street.
Tickets will be available at the door starting at 6:00 p.m. for $20 dollars apiece.
