Munch & Movies: Big Hero 6
The annual outdoor film festival geared for kids and families starts up this week. Although late entries, these events are often summertime favorites; relaxed, good-natured events. This week's film is a touching story about a plump inflatable robot who teams up with a group of prodigy-geek kids in San Francisco. A Disney-Marvel combination. 6 – 10 pm, Friday, August 21. Northwest Crossing's Compass Park, 2500 NW Crossing Dr. Free.
