Big day at Lakewood Ranch Cinemas with the opening of Planes: Fire & Rescue.... We have Mr. Robbie Jefferson and Mr. Levi Barlow of Florida Forest Service's Wildlife Firefighters here with us today as well as our own Robert E. Thayer, Lieutenant with the Southern Manatee County Fire Rescue.
Here is a quick synopsis of the movie..... When world-famous air racer Dusty learns that his engine is damaged and he may never race again, he must shift gears and is launched into the world of aerial firefighting. Dusty joins forces with veteran fire and rescue helicopter Blade Ranger and his team, a bunch of all-terrain vehicles known as The Smokejumpers. Together, the fearless team battles a massive wildfire, and Dusty learns what it takes to become a true hero.
