A few weeks ago we got “The LEGO Movie,” an animated feature that looked like a disaster waiting to happen. Since its release, however, the film has become a box office hit and received praise from virtually every human being on the planet, myself included. “Mr. Peabody & Sherman” is another family movie that seemed destined to flop at first glance.

Got a youngster who’s into big machines? A variety of interesting aircraft will be rolled out onto the tarmac for a closer look at Gateway Aviation Day. The free event also offers a kids zone full of fun activities and food vendors.
