Benefits of Summer Movies
Encourages Appropriate Social Behavior
This is a wonderful opportunity for children to practice appropriate social behavior. This will vary based on the age of the child. Two years ago, we brought my children who were just learning to sit through movies, and now we have no problem bringing them to movie theatre for new movies. Not only do kids learn to sit quietly, they also learn about personal space and not hitting the seat in front of them.
This year, the Summer Kids Program will be playing the movie Boss Baby which is a movie my family loves. I know this is a movie that will generate different levels of conversation based on the children’s age.
Kinnelon Cinemas plays movies that have been released a year ago to a few years ago. It is a wonderful way to bond with our children and share with them the magic of watching movies that entertain!
Each week a different family friendly movie will be shown on Every Wednesday and Thursday at 10 am between June 26 until August 29. Seats are limited and tickets will be distributed on a first come first serve basis. Before 11am the Kids Refreshment Pack is only $3.
