Big trucks and free movie screenings (Aug. 2, 5 and 9)

August 1, 2008

In the past year or so I’ve cut down on the number of free publications I pick up. Instead, I’m receiving more of their feeds via e-mail.  This is a detriment to advertisers in the print version, and being a print person I want to support the medium, but having unread material in my inbox (currently the total is 36 e-newsletters alone) is a lot less messy than having it all over my desk!

But there’s no way I can pass up these publications entirely.  There’s just too much good under-the-radar info in them.  For example:  Both of today’s tips come from St. Louis Kids magazine.  The first is “On the Road in America: Big Truck Day” at the Kemp Auto Museum in Chesterfield.  It happens tomorrow (Aug. 2) from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in conjunction with the museum’s ongoing exhibit of paintings and its permanent exhibition of 30 “historically significant” cars. I hadn’t checked the museum’s offerings lately, so I was pleasantly surprised to see what all’s happening there this summer — movie nights, music performances by kid-friendly bands, even a lock-in for ages 6 to 12.  Some of the activities have a nominal fee, but the big truck day is free.

The other tip is about two movie screenings sponsored by the magazine, American Teen (Aug. 5 at 7 p.m., ages 13 and above accompanied by parents only) and Star Wars: The Clone Wars (Aug. 9 at 10 a.m.).  For info on how to get passes for either screening, click on its title.
