Cinemark plans to open soon with some great specials

Begining June 19th Cinemark is going to start a phased reopening plan. The plan will start in Texas with 5 theaters opening in the first week.

The second week will see 1/3 of their domestic theaters opening which will most likely include the Kansas City market opening up on June 26th. They are offering $5 classic movies and reduced concession pricing to lure people back to the movies.

Cinemark is poised to take advantage of the cinema market with AMC announcing that it will be likely to close up in the coming months following the pandemic. I’m ready to go see a movie!


ABC has a star studded Disney Sing-Along scheduled on Thursday

Who’s ready to belt out some Disney classics? Word on the street says this loaded cast will be belting out tunes from favorites such as The Little Mermaid, Moana, Beauty and the Beast, Frozen and more. My kids are teens these days but maybe they’ll join me…

Be sure to look up this week. Lyrid Meteor to peak April 21st-22nd


Kids using sidewalk chalk to bring hope and laughter

Local kids all over the KC area are taking to the sidewalks to get our their creative energy and spread messages of hope and laughter. Some are downright hilarious. I will admit that until today I hadn’t been Rick Rolled in quite some time and I still have no idea what “Yeet” means.

The kids over at Martial Arts Institute – North in Overland Park drew the messages below. The Martial Arts Institute – North is also a state licensed day care facility and offers a great place for the kids to go. The owner came out today and mentioned from a safe distance that “the kids worked hard on those”. Good job kids!

The family below took the time to thank all of the First Resonders in the area. Good work by all the kids. Stay safe everyone.
