Columbus, Georgia – May 16, 2018: The NIM Kids Summer Film Fest is back! Families can enjoy a summer full of film favorites at the best price ever: FREE! The series, brought to you by the National Infantry Museum Foundation and Muscogee Moms, runs June 5 through July 21 in the museum’s Giant Screen Theater.
Join Woody, Horton, Boss Baby, Miquel and dozens of other cherished characters every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. for digital screenings of 12 different family-friendly movies on the region’s largest screen. Sensory-friendly screenings will be offered on Wednesdays, allowing kids bothered by loud noises and darkness to also enjoy a big screen outing.
Admission is free to both children and adults. You’ll want to arrive early before the theater fills up! The concessions stand will have snacks and light lunches for sale, including pizza, hot dogs, nachos, popcorn, candy, soda and ice cream.
Important security notes: Bags larger than 11” x 6” x 15” are not permitted. Bag checks and wand scans will be conducted to ensure guest safety. Small clear bags will be provided by security personnel for your most necessary items. No outside food or drinks are allowed.
Before or after the movie, take time to visit the museum’s amazing collection of artifacts covering more than 240 years of Infantry history, or take a tour of World War II Company Street. The National Infantry Museum is educational, inspirational, and entertaining. And it’s a great place to escape the summer heat!
