If you haven’t noticed lately, the movie theater situation around Champaign-Urbana is a little less than to be desired. That’s because both megaplexes are renovating — simultaneously. On the north side of town, the Carmike Beverly has shut down temporarily while it rebuilds. And on the south side of town, Savoy 16 is down a few theaters as it adds on an IMAX facility and other amenities.
So it’s nice to see that despite all this crazy construction, that Savoy 16 is continuing its tradition of showing free kids movies on spring weekends.
Rainy day? Cold out? Missed these the first time around? Then free is the place to be! Here is the schedule for the *FREE* spring kids movies offered at the Savoy 16. For reviews and the age appropriateness of these movies, visit Common Sense Media.
Here’s the 411: Starting March 2-3 and continuing every weekend through April 27-28, free movies will start at 9 and 10 a.m., every Saturday AND Sunday at Savoy 16. Free admission, all ages! Movies are first come, first serve. Concession stand deals for kids are available ($3.50 for popcorn, soda and candy; /$4.50 for the “healthy” combo of popcorn, bottled water and a granola bar.)
