Arbor Annie’s Weekend Roundup – September 14-16

Summer weather makes a bit of a comeback this weekend. Temperatures are in the 80s and the forecast is for clear weather. That makes it a perfect weekend for some of the outdoor events on the calendar.

Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - September 14-16

This weekend is the Sixth Annual Russian Festival. Stop by and celebrate Russian culture.

Despite all the fall activities on the calendar, this weekend is going to be fairly warm. Fuller Park Pool is open through this weekend. You can also check out our parks for splashing.

    Movies

    The Free Fall Movies at Quality 16 continue this weekend. This weekend’s movie is Sherlock Gnomes.

    Ann Arbor Free Morning Movies at Quality 16 - Fall 2018

    Late August and early September isn’t a great time for family movies, so there aren’t many to recommend. Many of the movies in theaters are rated R. The next family friendly release is The House with a Clock in Its Walls on September 21 followed by Smallfoot on September 28.

    We saw Christopher Robin last month. While we all enjoyed it, the movie is better for adults and older kids than younger kids.

    Christopher Robin - Trailer

    If you haven’t seen Ant-Man and The Wasp, we really enjoyed it. Be sure to check our review and parental guidance before heading to the theater.
