Summer Movie Camps- $1 Movies For Charity

Every Wednesday at 10:00am now through August 6th there is a kid movie playing at the Newport on the Levee theater. We tested it out this week and found it well worth the dollar price to get in. We got there super early since they said you could buy your tickets up to a week in advance, I figured that meant they might sell out, but that was not the case at all. Plenty of seats. Plenty of quiet children (obviously a few babies fussing here and there, but not bad like I figured when I saw the daycamps pouring in) It's a great way to spend the morning, especially if we get some rain on a Wednesday this summer. My oldest complained that it was such a nice day outside, why should we spend it inside watching a movie? So certainly, going forward we are going to wait for rain.

Thanks for posting this Jen. It is sad statement of affairs to admit that I've seen all these movies. I regret that if you posted a list of adult movies I would not have seen any of them. I'm glad you guys had fun. We may have to look at moving piano lesson day. I've heard that there's also lots of events going on downtown this summer. My kids enjoyed the Sound of Music on Fountain Square (I think they're showing movies on Saturday nights), and there's music every Thursday at noon. I still want to meet up at the West Side YMCA soon.
