See free movie about deer

The Sanctuary Friends Foundation of the Florida Keys will feature a free documentary Tuesday night at the Marathon Power Squadron Building, 52nd St. Gulf on Loggerhead Lane.

"The Private Life of Deer" examines the explosion in deer populations as well as how wild deer interact and adapt to suburban environments. Free popcorn will be offered; drinks are available for a small donation, organizers say. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.
