Toy Story 3, the third in Disney Pixar's wildly successful Toy Story series premieres this weekend. If your kids are fans, the St. Louis Crisis Nursery has arranged a special treat just for them.
A special showing of the movie in 3D is scheduled for Saturday morning at Saint Louis Galleria 6 Cinemas, and Woody and Buzz Lightyear will be there in person to greet kids and welcome them to the show. And it gets better. The Cardinal's own Fredbird will also be flying in for the occasion.
Kids get to meet the movie heroes, receive a movie ticket, 3D glasses, small popcorn and small drink for $10. Adults get a special treat too. For $15, you'll enjoy complimentary Starbucks coffee and get to don your own 3D glasses for the movie.
The event is a fundraiser for the St. Louis Crisis Nursery, an independent, non-for-profit organization that provides a short-term safe haven for children, birth through age 12, whose families are faced with an emergency or crisis. The charity is in its 24th year of caring for local children and families.
Saturday's show begins at 9:30 a.m., and doors open at 9. Advance tickets are available through the St. Louis Crisis Nursery by calling 314-292-5770, or email [email protected]. Find out more about the premiere at www.crisisnurserykids.org
