Arbor Annie’s Spring Break Roundup April 4-8, 2016

Spring Break got off to a crazy start this weekend. First there was all of the events (Spring Game, FestiFools/FoolMoon, Hash Bash, and Ann Arbor Marathon to name a few). Then the crazy weather with snow making it feel more like Winter Break.

If you’re still in town over Spring Break, I’ve compiled a list of the events and activities going on around town this week.

Arbor Annie's Spring Break Picks

Arbor Annie’s Spring Break Picks

In addition to these special events, Arbor Annie recommends the a visit to the Hands-On Museum with their Boing Bounce Splat Spring Break activities which will be held from 10a-4p each weekday during Spring Break. Speaking of museums, don’t forget to check out our Guide to the Top 5 Museums in & near Ann ArborTop 5 Ann Arbor Area Museums for KidsThis week is also International Dark Sky Week. With no early school mornings, it is a good week for the kids to stay out late (although the frigid temperatures may disagree). Twenty Michigan state parks will be staying open late this week. 

Don’t miss our complete events list below, or the Events Calendar on the website for all the events this week. If I’ve missed anything, I’ll be adding them as I find them.

Movies

Quality 16’s free movies continue on Friday and runs through Sunday. This weekend’s Morning Movie is Max. I know my daughter is interested in seeing the movie based on the previews  she saw before it was released in theaters. Be warned that the topic may be too heavy for some children.

If you want to see a “new release” movie, there are several ways to make it more affordable than a weekend evening show. Rave offers discounts to the first showing of a film each day (before 1p). They also offer discount pricing all day on Wednesdays. Quality 16 offers Thrifty Tuesday with all day discount pricing.

Batman v. Superman Movie Review

Did you see Batman v. Superman last weekend? We went last Thursday night to see it on pre-Opening Night. Definitely not on par with the Marvel movies – the Marvel Cinematic Universe films by Disney and the X-Men/Deadpool films. It was better than last summer’s Fantastic Four movie.

Zootopia Movie Review

If you didn’t get a chance to see Zootopia yet, we really enjoyed it. Are you wondering if you should see Zootopia? Check out our thoughts on the movie and who we recommend the movie for.
