Care for kids, fun for parents part of Kidzu fundraiser

Posted October 5, 2015

The 2.5-story treehouse is a new focal point for the Chapel Hill museum.

Kidzu Children's Museum and Silverspot Cinema are teaming up for what sounds like a fun night that will serve as a fundraiser for the children's museum and a sneak preview of the new theater.

From 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., Oct. 21, for $25 per person, adults can enjoy a wine and appetizer reception, featuring items from the theater's menu, along with admission to a movie of their choice. All of the proceeds from the evening will go toward Kidzu's educational programming.

At the same time, Kidzu will be offering childcare for an additional fee of $35 for the first child and $25 for additional kids in the same family. The drop-off event for kids ages 3 to 9 will include play in the museum, movie and a dinner. (Kids must be potty trained).

Both the theater and museum are at University Mall in Chapel Hill.

The theater will feature hand stitched leather, alcoholic beverages, a large menu, reserved seating and more. It will screen both blockbusters, along with independent, foreign and 3D films.

“We are excited about the possibilities of this new partnership,” said Tina Clossick, Kidzu’s operations director, in an announcement. “Kidzu and Silverspot both have a shared vision of inspiring people through creativity. Movies, like creative play, can transport ones imagination and create wonderful shared memories.”

This sounds like a fun night for family friends - with the adults going to Silverspot and the kids going to Kidzu.

Tickets for the event can be purchased in person at Kidzu Children’s Museum or on the museum's website.

In the last six months, since moving into a new spot at University Mall, the museum has seen record attendance of more than 45,000 visitors.
