Mark your calendars and get ready for some big screen magic: All your Disney favorites are returning to Marcus Theatres January 24-February 17!

Thanks to Marcus Theatres for sponsoring this post.

Looking for a fun and affordable cure for cabin fever? Our friends at the Marcus Crosswoods Cinema in Columbus and Marcus Pickerington Cinema in Pickerington can help. That’s because they’re bringing back the Enchanted Tales Film Series January 24-February 17!

Enchanted Tales Film Series Returns to Marcus Theatres this Winter:

This season’s line-up features a collection of beloved favorites including “Aladdin,” “The Lion King,” “Sleeping Beauty” and “Pocahontas” on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Enchanted Tales is the perfect way to introduce your family to the magic of classic Disney films the way they were originally meant to be seen — on the big screen! Better yet, admission to any film in the series is just $6 per person — get your tickets online or in theatre!

(Pro tip: Click here to download a coloring sheet, have your kids color in their favorite character, then bring it to Marcus Theatres during your Enchanted Tales show to receive a FREE complimentary-size popcorn!)

$6 Movie Line-up

All movies play at 10 a.m., 12:15 p.m., 2:30 p.m. and 4:45 p.m. each day.

January 24-26: “Aladdin”
January 31-February 2: “The Lion King”
February 7-9: “Sleeping Beauty”
February 14-17: “Pocahontas”

(Pro tip: Kids out of school on President’s Day? “Pocahontas” is also playing on Monday, February 17…it’s the perfect day off activity!)

Why These Classic Disney Movies are Even Better on the Big Screen

As if you needed even more convincing, we’ve compiled a list to make your decision to see one — or all four — films even easier.

1. Seeing where it all began with the original animated movies that inspired last year’s hit live-action remakes.
 
2. Sharing the experience watching beloved favorites from “Disney’s renaissance” in the theatre — just like you did — with your kids. And have you EVER seen 1959’s “Sleeping Beauty” on the big screen?!
 
3. THAT MUSIC. These films feature three award-winning songs, from “A Whole New World” to “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” to “Colors of the Wind” — and you’ll want to hear them with dynamic movie theatre sound, surrounded by your fellow Disney fans.

What are you waiting for? Get your tickets, download your coloring sheets and we’ll see you at the Marcus Crosswoods Cinema or Marcus Pickerington Cinema soon!

Mark Your Calendars: Kids Dream Returns with $3 Family Films

And stay tuned for more information about the return of recent family favorites like “Abominable” and “The Secret Life of Pets 2” during the Kids Dream Family Series! The fun kicks off February 21 and runs through April 5 at both local Marcus Theatres. All films will be just $3 per person!
