Arbor Annie’s Easter Weekend Picks – April 14-16

This weekend is a Tale of Two Days. Saturday and Sunday are completely different on the events calendar. There are tons of events on Saturday and few events on Sunday since it is Easter. Saturday’s events include lots of Easter themed events (like Egg Hunts and Easter Bunny visits) plus non-holiday events like the UM Spring Game. For Sunday, I do have a list of Easter Brunches and places that are open or closed on Sunday.

Arbor Annie's Easter Weekend Picks - April 14-16

Arbor Annie’s Easter Weekend Event Picks

I have to admit that Easter was a bit of a surprise this year coming the weekend after Spring Break. I’m just recovering from our vacation, and all of a sudden it’s holiday preparation time.

Movies

New in theaters last week was 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.

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

Action movies that may interest the tween/teen crowd are Power Rangers and Kong: Skull Island. Both are rated PG-13, so use your parental judgement (I have not seen either).

Quality 16’s Free Matinee is Trolls this weekend.
