The Hobbit – An Unexpected Journey
See the little hobbit on the big screen when it opens at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History IMAX theater with a 7pm showing on Friday. Granted, it’s a long movie at 166 minutes, but the older kids who may have read the stories by J.R.R. Tolkien, or are fans of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, will love it. This movie starring Bilbo Baggins is the first of three film adaptations for The Hobbit. Tickets are $10.50.
Anne Frank – A Private Photo Album
If the kids haven’t yet read The Diary of Anne Frank, they will. Give them a glimpse into Anne Frank’s life during happier times with an exhibit of rarely seen family photographs, on view through March 31 at the Dallas Holocaust Museum and Center for Education and Tolerance.
The exhibit includes 71 of 400 photographs from Otto Frank’s private family photo album, which remained hidden in the annex after the family’s deportation. The exhibit includes a 28-minute award-winning documentary film, The Short Life of Anne Frank. Admission is $8 for adults and $6 for ages 6 and older.
My Little Valentine Family Dance
Don’t wait until your kids’ weddings to have those father-daughter and mother-son dances. Take your little ones – boys and girls ages 12 and younger – to the Denton Civic Center for special family dance with a live DJ, cookies and punch from 7–9pm. Photos, roses and glow products will be available for purchase, and admission is only $7 at the door.
