The Boxcar Children-Surprise Island In Theaters May 8th Plus #Giveaway #sponsored #BoxCarChildren

4/20/18
This is a sponsored post in partnership with Shout Factory and Fathom Events.  All opinions are mine.

The Boxcar Children-Surprise Island, an all new animated feature, is opening in theaters nationwide on May 8 as part of a special after-school event with Fathom Events, Shout! Kids, and Legacy Classics. The film is based on one of the books from the beloved series by Gertrude Chandler Warner and is family-friendly for all ages, with a recommendation for kids 3-13.

Fathom Events, Shout! Kids

Moviegoers will have an exclusive introduction with actor Griffin Gluck and Director Dan Chuba explaining the process of adapting the book to film, and the process of animating. The film is being released in approximately 700 select U.S. movie theaters.  A complete list of theater locations will be available at Fathomevents.com.

I have fond memories of my son reading The Boxcar Children book series when he was little, and I am looking forward to my daughters reading them as well.   Those who love the books are sure to enjoy this animated film that celebrates the 75th anniversary of the series!



Did You Know?

There are 150 books in the series, and over 1 million kids read the books in schools across North America every year. Plus over 70 million books have sold world-wide!



About the Film:

Simmons (Whiplash) as Dr. Moore, Dane DeHaan (Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets) as the mysterious Joe, Joey King (Independence Day: Resurgence) as Jesse Alden, Carter Sand (Frozen) as Benny Alden, Gil Birmingham (Twilight) as Lonan Browning, Griffin Gluck (Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life) as Henry Alden, Stephen Stanton (Star Wars Rebels) as Capt. Daniel and Talitha Bateman (The 5th Wave) as Violet. 

THE BOXCAR CHILDREN - SURPRISE ISLAND follows the adventures of the orphaned Boxcar Children as they spend an entire summer living on their Grandfather’s small, nearly uninhabited island. There they meet Joe, who is friendly and helpful, and inexplicably living on their island. Does their new friend have a secret?



THE BOXCAR CHILDREN - SURPRISE ISLAND is fun for the whole family, and is Dove approved for all ages. It is directed by Dan Chuba and Mark DippĂ©, and is produced by Legacy Classics and co-produced by Shout! Factory, Albert Whitman & Company and Blueberry Pictures.

Like Arrows Fandango #Giveaway #LikeArrows #FlyBy #Sponsored

4/18/18
Many thanks to Propeller Consulting, LLC for providing this prize for the giveaway. Choice of winners and opinions are 100% my own and NOT influenced by monetary compensation. I did receive a sample of the product in exchange for this review and post.

From executive producers Alex and Stephen Kendrick (War Room, Courageous), FamilyLife’s Dennis and Barbara Rainey, and Bob Lepine, the inspirational event Like Arrows will debut in movie theaters nationwide for two nights this May.
Like Arrows focuses on the power of a family to shape the next generation as they turn to their faith after all else has failed.


Fathom Events and Collide Media Group partner to present this unique event in U.S. cinemas on Tuesday, May 1 and Thursday, May 3 at 7:00 p.m. local time (both days). Audiences will also experience an exclusive panel discussion featuring Alex and Stephen Kendrick, Dennis and Barbara Rainey, and Bob Lepine after the event.
"We've had a very positive response from those who've had the opportunity to watch 'Like Arrows.' It's a powerful and relatable story that I hope will inspire and help families with any challenges they are facing at home," "Like Arrows" Executive Producer Bob Lepine said. "It is exciting to partner with Fathom Events to bring this content to families across the country."

Tickets for Like Arrows can be purchased online or at participating theater box offices. Fans throughout the U.S. will be able to enjoy the event in more than 800 select movie theaters. For a complete list of theater locations, visit FamilyLife (theaters and participants are subject to change).

Movie Synopsis:


Movie Review, Fandango Giveaway, movie tickets

When conflict, rebellion, and resentment overwhelm their family, Charlie and Alice are forced to rethink their parenting strategy. In the process, they realize how critical intentionality and focus are when shaping and molding young lives. FamilyLife’s first feature film explores the challenges and joys that come with raising children.

Entertainment, movie review, FamilyLife film, Christian films, Christian movies

Through a journey that unfolds over 50 years, Charlie and Alice discover the unmistakable power of family. Together, they learn that knowing and living by God’s Word is what brings transformation and hope to any family.


I recently screened this movie online.  It is geared toward Christian families and focuses on the importance of keeping grounded in your faith while traveling down the often rocky road of parenting.  You may recognize the main actor is the former singer from Christian Group Anthem Lights.   Whether you're a first time parent or a seasoned one, there are many relatable moments.  

In my opinion, this movie feels more like a Sunday school lesson than a gripping family drama. But if you enjoy movies like Courageous and War Room, you'll probably enjoy this film too.

Big Apple Circus is Coming To #Philadelphia! #BigAppleCircus

4/12/18
The circus is coming to town!  My family has always enjoyed the circus.  It is fun family entertainment that is sure to put a smile on your face!

Big Top Works, the new producers of BIG APPLE CIRCUS, are pleased to announce PHILADELPHIA as a stop on the national tour during its historic and critically acclaimed 40th anniversary season.

The full lineup of global artists and acts including 10-time world record-holding high wire artist Nik Wallenda will play under the Big Top at the Philadelphia Mills Mall from Wednesday, May 23rd – Sunday, June 24th

World renowned for its one-ring, intimate and artistic style, where no seat is more than 50 feet from the performers, BIG APPLE CIRCUS is passionate about revitalizing the circus for modern-day audiences with unique and astounding human feats, and innovative design and technology.

The 40th anniversary season program features the famous seven-person pyramid on the high wire with Nik Wallenda and The Fabulous Wallendas and the daring quadruple somersault attempted on the trapeze by The Flying Tunizianis – the first time in circus history that both legendary feats are performed under the same big top

The record-setting acts are joined by Dandino & Luciana, a dynamic duo who combine speed, acrobatics and daredevil grace on roller-skates; award-winning contortionist Elayne Kramer; master juggler Gamal Garcia; Jan Damm on the Rola Bola; acclaimed Risley acrobats The Anastasini Brothers (who broke the World Record for Most Flips on November 9, 2017); Ringmaster Ty McFarlan; hilarious clowns Skip & Mr. Joel; and circus trainer & presenter Jenny Vidbel, who performs in the ring with 16 horses and ponies, as well as six rescue dogs. 

 


Outside of the ring, BIG APPLE CIRCUS continues to honor the essential & iconic characteristics that have set them apart for the past four decades with multiple community outreach programs and a vital no-wild-animals policy.  Circus of the Senses offers special enhanced experiences for audiences with autism, visual and auditory challenges. The special performances include ASL interpretation, assistive listening devices with live audio commentary, pre- & post-show touch therapy experiences, and a Braille program book. Sensory-friendly performances for Autistic audience members will feature lowered light and sound levels, a descriptive picture book showing the different areas and acts involved with the circus, and a “calming center” that can be accessed at any point during the show.


The BIG APPLE CIRCUS 40th anniversary season is directed by Mark Lonergan, artistic director of three-time Drama Desk Award-nominated physical theater company Parallel Exit, with choreography and associate direction by Antoinette DiPietropolo and music direction by Rob Slowik. Tony Award-winning Lighting Designer Jeff Croiter (Peter and the Starcatcher, Something Rotten!), Scenic Designers Rob Bissinger (Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark, Legally Blonde – Assoc) and Anita LaScala (Magic Mike Live) of ARDA Studio, Inc, and Drama Desk-nominated Costume Designer Amy Clark (Heathers: The Musical, Chaplin) come together to create a most vibrant environment to fit the momentous occasion of the circus’s return.
