Ever wondered what the perfect movie pairing for kids might be? The Orpheum has it at this Friday’s matinee: basketball stars and cartoons!
When an alien circus wants to abduct Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Taz, and rest of their crew for their latest attraction, a basketball game is set to determine the fate of the Tunes. To give them the boost they need, His Royal Airness himself is recruited to help the Tune Squad defeat their extraterrestrial foes. Will zany cartoon antics (and a last minute assist from Bill Murray) save the day? Find out in this Friday’s matinee screening of Space Jam at the Orpheum, brought to you by Orion!
The movie starts at 1:30pm, but bring the kids early for all the pre-show fun in the lobby: there will be giveaways and prizes from the Grizzlies Claw Crew, and great photo ops with lifesize cutouts of your favorite Grizz players. Best of all, Grizz and the Grizz Girls will be there for your little ones to meet in person! The kiddos will love this outing – bring them & you’re guaranteed to be their favorite adult for the afternoon!
