Bluebird Movie Club
The Bluebird Movie Club is back! In partnership with Hutchinson's Historic Fox Theatre, Bluebird is pleased to offer a themed kids activity session at the store before each Fox Kid's Movie this summer!
Each hour-long session will be filled with fun activities specially chosen around the Fox movie of the week, such as science experiments from Gru's Lab during Despicable Me, designing your own Viking shield during How to Train Your Dragon, or crafting boats like Stuart Little!
Admission is $5 per child, which includes the Bluebird Movie Club, Fox Theatre admission, and concessions.
Each Movie Club session begins at 12:30 pm and ends at 1:30 pm. This will allow you time to pick up your child and transport them to the Fox for the 2:00 pm movie!
