Christmas break arrives this week for most of us, if it hasn't already, and the kids will be looking for stuff to do in their newfound free time.
Fortunately for us parents, there are two family-friendly movies playing this week that will entertain the kids without wrecking your holiday budget.
This Thursday, Dec. 19 (tomorrow!), at 7 p.m., the Kiwanis Club of Danville is showing "A Christmas Story" for Kiwanis Klassic Family Movie Night at the Royal Theater in Danville. Tickets are sold at the door and are a mere $3 per adult and $1 per child under the age of 12.
All proceeds from ticket sales go back to the Kiwanis Club of Danville to be used right here in our community in the form of several sponsorships and projects.
This 1983 "klassic" is set in small-town Indiana in the 1940s and chronicles Ralphie's quest to receive a Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas. It is rated PG and has a run time of 94 minutes.
This edition of Kiwanis Klassic Family Movie Night is sponsored by Diesel's Sports Grille and Hackleman Auto Collision Repair -- both located in Danville.
The Royal Theater is located at 59 S. Washington Street in Danville, on the east side of the historic Courthouse Square.
Then this Friday, Dec. 20 at 7 p.m., Washington Township Parks & Recreation is showing "The Polar Express" inside The Pavilion Center at Washington Township Park in Avon.
Admission to this movie is free! Concessions are sold at very reasonable prices, but you can also bring your own treats. (It's allowed. I promise. You don't have to sneak it in.)
"The Polar Express" is an animated film starring Tom Hanks. It follows a young boy who boards a magical train on Christmas Eve and rekindles his belief in Santa Claus. The movie is rated PG and has a run time of 100 minutes.
This is part of a monthly movie series at The Pavilion Center through March that is sponsored by the Hendricks Power Cooperative. You can click here to learn more about it.
The Pavilion Center is located back by the Splash Pad. For those with GPS, the address is 435 Whipple Lane in Avon.
See you at the movies!
