Movies are a great way to beat cabin fever and get the kids out of the house. Instead of hitting the cineplex this weekend, bring the whole family to the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park for a FREE screening of the beloved Disney classic “Lady and the Tramp” this Saturday, February 13 as part of the museum’s Family Films series. The movie starts at 2:30 p.m., but get there early for fun, pre-show storytelling workshops. Light snacks will be offered. Visit www.mohistory.org for more information.
