Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks January 5-7

I’m looking forward to one thing this weekend – warmer temperatures on Sunday even if they’re bringing snow with them. I’ve had enough of the frigid temperatures. Fortunately, it looks like the chance of accumulation has greatly decreased so hopefully school will resume on Monday as planned.

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Event Picks

With the holidays over and school resuming Monday, things are starting to return to normal this weekend. There are no special closures this weekend – however the event list is still relatively light.

    Movies

    The big movie event this weekend is the celebration of Michigan Theater’s 90th anniversary. Check out their showing of the 1928 silent film Show People on Friday.

    The big movie in theaters is still Star Wars: The Last Jedi. We’ve seen it twice, so don’t miss our review and parental guidance. We saw it in IMAX 3D at Emagine on opening weekend and again last week at State Theatre.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi - Poe & BB-8

    This week, my daughter and I enjoyed Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. It’s a fun movie for winter break.

    Coco was as great as I heard – although we didn’t write a review. I definitely recommend it if you haven’t seen it yet.

    Disneyβ€’Pixar's Coco

    Other movies in theaters include Ferdinand (based on the book), The Greatest Showman about PT Barnum, Pitch Perfect 3, and Wonder.

    Looking Forward to Next Week
