Minneapolis Central Library
Series begins September 20, 2014
10:00 a.m. FREE!
The 2014 Series Starts Saturday, September 20th with films from the New York International Children’s Festival.
I can count on one hand the number of times we’ve taken kids out to a movie at an honest-to-gosh cinema. Much of it has to do with the fact that usually where the older sibs go, the younger ones must follow (the young ones being the ones without the suggested attention span). And the rest of it is about that painful price of movie tickets – not to mention that $10 bucket of popcorn the kids’ll no doubt beg for.
Enter the Childish Films monthly series at the Minneapolis Central Library. It’s the perfect solution.
Especially this Saturday, September 20, when the free, kid-friendly cinema is screening its Kid Flix Fest! None of the 8 short films to be screened runs more than 7 minutes (perfect for those fidgety little sibs that must come along). Most other Saturdays the quirky independent films run about 30-40 minutes. Plus, the popcorn price isn’t an issue because Whole Foods generously donates snacks starting at 10 a.m.
Around 10:30, live entertainment begins. Entertainment varies from month to month; check the schedule to get the latest information.
If my memory serves me correctly, the movies will begin around 11:00 a.m. No rush, there isn’t a bad seat in the house.
