Arbor Annie's Weekday Picks - August 12-16

Arbor Annie’s Weekday Roundup – August 12-16

Summer is winding down! As I headed up to work on the newsletter last night, I commented to my husband that there are just 2 more Sunday night newsletters for summer.

Arbor Annie's Weekday Picks - August 12-16

Arbor Annie’s Weekday Picks

After cancelling due to potential rain last Tuesday, Pittsfield’s National Night Out Celebration at Lillie Park is trying again this week.

Both Emagine and Cinemark wrap up their summer movie series this week. Cinemark is showing Despicable Me 3 on Tuesday. Emagine’s movie is An American Tail on Wednesday & Thursday.

Personally, we’re still in recovery mode after a 10 day road trip vacation visiting family – extended by a day after a flat tire as we headed for home. After arriving home Saturday afternoon, we had a busy weekend getting caught up at home. So, this week will be catching up on the website – and hopefully experiencing some of the fun events on the calendar.

Check out our places to get wet. We went kayaking before our trip, but I really want to head to the Cascades and go tubing. And my husband has Rolling Hills high on his list.

It’s also a great week to find a new playground to explore. Check out our weekly Playground Profile series.

    Movies

    The summer matinee series at local theaters wrap up this week. Cinemark plays Despicable Me 3 on Tuesday. Emagine has An American Tail on Wednesday and Thursday. Quality 16’s series ended up a couple weeks ago.

    Dora and the Lost City of Gold opened on Friday. Scary Stories To Tell in the Darkalso opened on Friday. It’s rated PG-13, but based on a series of boos for kids in grades 3-7.

    The Lion King opened a couple weekends ago to mixed reviews. We didn’t see it, but I’m in the I’m not sure it needed to be made camp. If you saw it, let us know what you thought.

    Lion King - Pride Rock

    Spider-Man Far From Home opened last month and is a great choice. We’re actually looking forward to an Avengers Endgame movie night since it comes out on BluRay this week.

    Spider-Man in Columbia Pictures’ SPIDER-MAN: ™ FAR FROM HOME

    Toy Story 4 is still going strong. Be sure to check our review and make plans to see it yourself.

    Toy Story 4 Gabby Gabby & Henchmen
    GABBY GABBY – In Disney•Pixar’s “Toy Story 4,” Woody finds himself in Second Chance Antiques, home to an adorable, talking pull-string doll from the 1950s and her crew of voiceless ventriloquist dummies. Unfortunately for Gabby Gabby, a manufacturing defect in her pull-string voice box has left her sounding anything but adorable. Christina Hendricks lends her voice to Gabby Gabby. “Toy Story 4” opens in U.S. theaters on June 21, 2019…©2019 Disney•Pixar. All Rights Reserved.
