Family Movie Matinee
Tyler Public Library
201 S College Ave, Tyler, TX 75702
What a jackpot we found! Every third Saturday of the month the Tyler Public Library offers a FREE movie matinee for the whole family from 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM!
….and as you can see, we were not the only ones excited about seeing an afternoon movie. Our little adventurers couldn’t wait to get inside and make a pallet.
Last Saturday we lucked out with Pete’s Dragon, Abigayle and I hadn’t ever seen it before. I think this was a great pick for multiple ages.
In the library’s auditorium they have a large screen that projects onto the wall which makes you feel like you’re right at the movies. Better than the movies though, you can bring all the cozy pillows, blankets, and “Sparkly Eyed Animals” your heart desires. We even took off our shoes to maximize comfort 🙂
You are also welcome to bring snacks and drinks inside. However, if you run out or forgot yours, there are drink and snack vending machines conveniently right outside. I wish we would have gotten to the auditorium a little early so we could get settled before the movie began.
This matinee movie was just how we like it, BYOS (Bring your own stuff), not many rules, and extremely enjoyable.
ALSO.. If you are like Lili & I, full time college students, it is always nice to know that the library offers free WiFi. So you can bring homework, work, or feed your love of Pinterest while your kiddos are entertained.
However, not having my laptop was a good excuse to enjoy cuddles with these two cuties.
AND, the sweet lady at the library informed us that EVERY MORNING during Spring Break week they will be showing a movie from 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM. Movies like Moana, Secret Life of Pets, Finding Dory, and more!
Once you’re finished with the movie, you can trot over to the library with tons of books. And what is better than a movie and a good book?
- Snacks / Drinks
- Change for vending machines
- Bring homework/work
- Get there a bit early to get settled
- Your library card (only if you check out books after)
Definitely mark your calendars to come enjoy one of these family matinee movies!
All our Love,
