Arbor Annie’s Tax Weekend Roundup April 15-17, 2016

The weather this weekend couldn’t be more different from last weekend. Instead of sleet and temperatures in the 30s & 40s, we have sun and temperatures into the 70s! I’m so glad that my daughter’s Rec & Ed soccer starts this weekend instead of last weekend. It’s also the perfect weekend for an outdoor outing. It’s a perfect opening weekend for Greenfield Village which opened for 2016 today (Friday, April 15). 

Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks April 15-17

Tax Day Deals

Usually April 15 means Tax Day, but this year we’ve gotten a reprieve with taxes due Monday, April 18. Naturally that means I’ll be doing our taxes this weekend. With spring break last week, I’m very glad for the extra days to finish the taxes. Speaking of taxes, a number of businesses in the Ann Arbor area are offering deals for tax day. Some of these deals will run on Friday, April 15 while others run just on April 18, and still others last for several days.

Movies

Despite the gorgeous weather forecast, it’s a pretty good weekend for movies.

Free Movies

Quality 16’s free movies continue this weekend. This Weekend’s movie is Ice Age: Continental Drift. We’ve seen the movie a  couple of times, but it’s always good to revisit a movie before a sequel is released. Ice Age: Collision Course is due in theaters on July 22.

Jungle Book

Disney’s The Jungle Book opens today in theaters. With spring break, my daughter and I were unable to see a screening. I have heard good things about the movie, but also that it may be too scary for preschoolers. My daughter will be seeing the movie this weekend at a birthday party and we’ll share a review after that.

Rave Cinemas will have a Sensory Sensitive Showing of Jungle Book on Saturday morning. This screening is designed for children with sensory issues. The volume will be kept lower, lights won’t be as dark, and kids are free to move around during the show.

Batman v. Superman Movie Review

As the parent of a tween, our movie tastes run to super hero films. saw Batman v. Superman on pre-Opening Night. The movie was 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 4.

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.
