Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks – April 28-30

After a few weekends of big events (Spring Break, Easter, Earth Day), this weekend is more low key – unless you’re involved in a UM Graduation – or trying to navigate the downtown area.

Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - April 28-30

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Event Picks

This weekend is the last weekend of Free Morning Movies at Quality 16. They will be showing Sing at 10a on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday mornings.

Free Morning Movies at Quality 16 for Spring 2017

Stay tuned the next couple of weeks – they should be announcing their summer Dollar Movie schedule. Cinemark (Rave) has already announced their Summer Movie Clubhouse series.

This is the first weekend that Thomas the Train is at Greenfield Village. If you have a Thomas fan, we definitely recommend Day Out with Thomas.

Also this weekend, Pinkalicious is at the City Theatre in Detroit.

Pinkalicious The Musical

Closer to home, there are several other shows this weekend. Pioneer High School concludes their run of Wizard of Oz, Gemini is at The Ark, and Spinning Dot Theatre is showing The Boy at the Edge of Everything and The Underground Library.

Movies

New in theaters last weekend was Born in China. Check out our review from last weekend.

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is still in theaters and a great choice! Last weekend they introduced a new sing-along version. We definitely recommend it (with a few reservations for young children). 

Disney's Beauty and the Beast - Ballroom Dance

Also in theaters is Boss Baby which my daughter and I enjoyed.

The Boss Baby - Tim & Baby

Still in theaters is Smurfs: The Lost Village. My daughter wasn’t too intrigued, but as someone who grew up watching the Smurfs every Saturday morning, I might try to talk her into seeing the movie.

The alll-new, fully CG animated feature SMURFS: THE LOST VILLAGE by Columbia Pictures and Sony Pictures Animation, coming to theaters worldwide in March 2017.

Looking to Next Week

Next week Tuesday is a day off from school due to the election on the AAPS Bond Proposal. There are a number of camps that day and we’ll have some fun activity ideas to share on Monday.
