This weekend, the Rave Motion Pictures on Carpenter Rd will be showing the KidToon film Thomas: Hero of the Rails. The film will be showing at 10:25a on both Saturday and Sunday. KidToon film tickets are only $1 for children or $2 for adults.
We have previously seen Hero of the Rails as a KidToon film and my daughter enjoyed it. The KidToon films are affordably priced and tend to be shorter movies (close to an hour) and are a good introduction to movie theaters for young children.
In the past KidToon films have only shown one weekend a month, but are now playing most weekends. However, if they do not sell enough tickets a showing may be cancelled. This happened earlier this month to one of my daughter's classmates. I consider this a poor business practice and hope Rave Motion Pictures will not make a habit of this.
The movie is available on DVD or iTunes download but it is always a treat to take kids to the movies. There is also a book app available for newer iPhone/iPod Touches and the iPad. There is also a Little Golden Book available.
The July KidToons Film is Babar and the Adventures of Badou: Swing into Summer.
