NIM Kids Spring Film Fest Returns

 

Surly Squirrel and Smurfette light up the Giant Screen Theater

 

 

Columbus, Georgia – March 19, 2018:  Looking for something to do with the kids during Spring Break? The Giant Screen Theater at the National Infantry Museum will host the 2018 NIM Kids Spring Film Fest March 27-29 and March 31. The films are free to the public and are offered twice each day at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.

     On Wednesday, March 28 only, both screenings will be sensory-friendly for youngsters with autism-related disorders and others who may be overwhelmed by a standard theater experience. We’ll turn the lights up a bit and the sound down so that everyone can enjoy the show.

     On the schedule this year are The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature and Smurfs: The Lost Village. The film series is presented by Brodwyn Military Chiropractic, a division of Brodwyn & Associates, and media sponsor Muscogee Moms.

     Admission is on a first-come, first-seated basis. Yummy and affordable snacks and lunch options are available at the Rally Point Canteen in the theater lobby. A kid-sized Snack Pack (popcorn, fruit snack, and 16 oz. drink) is just $5.

     Please note: To ensure our guests’ safety, bags larger than 11” x 6” x 15” are not permitted inside the museum or on the museum campus. Security officers can provide clear plastic bags to those who need to bring in items for infants. No outside food or drinks are allowed.
