Loft Kids Fest 

It may be the dead of summer, but the Loft Cinema continues to offer a variety of entertainment options. Their annual Kids Fest is always a highlight, with plenty of cinematic fun and activities.

A kick-off party takes place at 5:30 p.m., Friday, July 18, at Trail Dust Town.  The Loft's program director Jeff Yanc tells us via email,  "There's going to be a lot of great activities going on, including live children's music by the One Man Train Band, a circus-inspired performance by Cirque Roots, animal encounters with Southern Arizona Greyhound Rescue, crafts and activities. ... Trail Dust Town will offer unlimited amusements, rides and Wild West stunt shows with the purchase of an $8 wristband.

"At the Kids Fest itself (July 19 to 27), we also have lots of activities going on every day before each film. The staff of Mildred & Dildred will host activities in the theatre every morning. ... Reid Park Zoo will be hosting a "Zoo-to-You" program featuring live bearded dragons and other reptiles on July 27 before How to Train Your Dragon. ...  (Before Pee-Wee's Big Adventure), there will be free raffles for bike items courtesy of Bookmans ... and the kids (will make) red bow ties.  ... We're planning on having a little Pee-Wee Dance Party before the movie." The Loft Cinema is located at 3233 E. Speedway Blvd.; more info at loftcinema.com.
