Arbor Annie’s March Madness Weekend Picks – March 17-19

Friday is St Patrick’s Day. However, most of the kid-friendly celebrations were last week. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate at home. The Leprechaun always visits our house and leaves some mischief behind. When he is feeling ambitious, he also leaves a rainbow treat trail to a pot of gold.

Arbor Annie's March Madness Weekend Picks - March 17-19

The other big event this weekend is the NCAA Tournament. Michigan plays at 12:15p on Friday. Hopefully they’ll win (and not bust my daughter’s bracket – at least for a few games). I know we’ll be watching games around our other weekend activities.

Movies

New in theaters this weekend is Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. My daughter and I loved the preview that we saw on Tuesday night. If your child loves Beauty & the Beast, don’t miss the Beauty & the Beast Crafts at Pittsfield Branch Library at 3p on Saturday afternoon.

Disney's Beauty and the Beast - Ballroom Dance

Emma Watson stars as Belle and Dan Stevens as the Beast in Disney’s BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, a live-action adaptation of the studio’s animated classic directed by Bill Condon.

Quality 16’s Free Matinees this weekend (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 10a) is Secret Lives of Pets

Free Morning Movies at Quality 16 for Spring 2017

Also in theaters is Kong: Skull Island which opened last weekend. We haven’t seen it, but my daughter expressed interest based on the commercials. She’s still disappointed she doesn’t get to see Logan, the new Wolverine movie which is rated R. Family friendly movies include The LEGO Batman Movie (which we loved), Dog’s Purpose, and Hidden Figures which are still in theaters. My daughter’s class took a field trip to see Hidden Figures a couple of weeks ago. She said the movie was very good.

Also in movies this week is the opening of the new Emagine theater in Saline
