 January 2010!   ~   For  Parents with Preschool Children  

   ~ The Princess and the Frog (G) ~ January 14th  

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel (PG) ~ January 28th


When you feel the winter chill - it is time for the movies!  Circle of Success® and Yakima Theatres welcome parents with their preschool children to a new year of movies 2010.  Both Cinema Circle movies for January will spark giggles in children and smiles in adults.  The first movie is The Princess and the Frog  (G) and it shows at The Majestic on Thursday, January 14th.  The next movie is Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel (PG)  on January 28th, and it also shows at The Majestic Theatre.  Both movies start at 11:00 AM.  The Majestic is located at 1919 S. 14th Street, in Union Gap.

 The Princess and the Frog (G) is a beautifully animated, colorful Disney movie.  It's about a princess and her talking animal friends and the prince who enters her life.  In Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel (PG),  pop music sensations Alvin, Simon and Theodore end up in the care of Dave Seville's nephew.  The boys put their music stardom aside to return to school to try and save the school's music program by entering a band contest with a $25,000 prize. Their unexpected competition is an attractive spunky trio called "The Chipettes."

 Parents and guardians accompanied by preschool and younger children can attend the 11:00 AM movie matinee on the second and fourth Thursday each month. Cinema Circle is not held during school vacations days. Matinee prices apply for parents and children at the Cinema Circle.  Matinee prices are:  parents - $6.00, children 4, 5, 6 years - $5.00 and one 3 year old and under is free with each paying adult. Tickets are available at the door and the doors open at 10:30 AM.  Concessions with your favorite movie treats are available. 

 For reasons of safety and supervision, only preschool and younger children with their parents or guardians are admitted into the Cinema Circle Matinee.  Please choose a regular matinee time if you have older children.

 This is the sixth season for the Cinema Circle matinee series and we sincerely thank the 3,000 children, parents, grandparents and guardians who have attended Cinema Circle movies during the first five seasons!  Cinema Circle movie events allow the parents of preschool children to join together, meet new friends, and enjoy first run movies at matinee prices.
