Looking for a cool indoor activity this week? When the temps reach the 40 degree with a humidex mark, this Momma retreats with the kids to nice, cool indoor places. A movie sure sounds good to me!

Today is the premiere of the new kids animated flick called Turbo and it looks really cute on the trailer so off we go! The basic premise is a little snail who dreams of being fast race car kind of snail, and when magical things happen and he gets his wish, who knows what will happen? I will let you know how it is.

And to make this even better, you can catch it at Kitchener’s Frederick Twin Cinemas. This little gem is one of the few independently owned theatres in the area and offers affordable pricing for families. It is a nice full size theatre that offers two screens seating approx. 200-300 with concessions.

Box Office Pricing

  • $5 matinees,
  • $5 kids 13 and under
  • $6.50 for adults
  • Tuesday’s it is only $4,

If you are a movie theatre or film officiando you might not like this theatre but for most people, it is just fine. Here are a few things to know before you go.. The seats are not the fancy schmancy ones, the sound system is not a high end Dolby digital one and they don’t offer 3D versions of any films,  ut it’s still a perfectly lovely movie experience for those who don’t want to break the bank. Having 3 kids, this is often the difference between going to a movie or staying home and they don’t seem to mind skipping the 3D.  I can take them all to a matinee for $20 instead of closer to $40 regular or $60 in 3D at an Empire Theatre.
