Vail, CO Colorado
VAIL, Colorado – The Vilar Performing Arts Center kicks off its Vail Valley Family Film Series Wednesday night with a free showing of “Kung Fu Panda” on the Vilar Center big screen, as well as a costume contest and martial arts demonstration to keep the whole family entertained.
The Film Series was originally advertised with a $3/child and $5/adult price, but thanks to the support of generous sponsors and the Beaver Creek Merchants Association, the ticket fees have been waived. The entire evening, including the pre-movie activities, are free of charge.
The series kicks off with “Kung Fun Panda” Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. The fun starts in the lobby at 6 p.m. with a martial arts demonstration led by the Inyodo School of Martial Arts in Edwards, followed by a costume contest. Kids who dress as their favorite character from “Kung Fu Panda,” are eligible to win prizes donated by local Beaver Creek businesses.
The series continues with “Hotel for Dogs” on July 1, “Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa” on July 8 and “Bolt” on July 15. Each weekly film is accompanied by a special pre-movie activity in the VPAC lobby, as well as the costume contest.

Seating for the film series is on a first come, first served basis. For more information, call the box office at 970-845-TIXS (8497).
A survey showed a good bit of support for local government action to bolster workforce housing in town. For now though, that support stops at supporting a new tax for funding.
