Going to the movie theater should be more enjoyable than watching a movie at home??a concept that Rosebud Theater has down pat. Cinephiles regain the sparkle in their eyes as they enter the historic venue, which originally opened as The Tosa Theatre in 1931 and was recently modernized to have great views and stellar sound. Unlike cramped multiplex theaters, Rosebud houses one solitary, comfortably spaced theater, where visitors won?t have to worry about hearing explosions from the monster-truck movie next door or accidently walking into the wrong monster-truck movie.
In addition to typical movie snacks such as popcorn, candy, and soda, the Rosebud sports a full menu of appetizers, sandwiches, quesadillas, and pizza, as well as a full bar stocked with wine, cocktails, and microbrews??all of which are delivered to patrons during featured presentations. Rather than standard chairs, the theater is furnished with cushy loveseats with room for 180 movie lovers to savor first-run Hollywood hits without wrestling strangers over armrests.
There's something for kids of all ages and interests at Kids in Motion. Toddlers and preschoolers can amuse themselves with rubber balls in the open play area, while older children navigate overhead tunnels and a punching-bag forest. Miniature Monets can stretch their creative muscles in the arts-and-crafts center, budding engineers can build their own railroad in the train room, and aspiring scientists can learn about nature with hands-on experiments in the science and conservation room. Children with a flair for the dramatic can even create a skit and put on a show in the Center Stage room. Whatever activity children choose, Kids in Motion offers a safe, clean environment where little ones can explore their interests.

The Big Backyard's owners each have two children of their own and struggled for a long time to find all-weather activities to please their own kids of different ages. They finally decided to create their own playground to address all their needs, building an indoor space with slides, climbing structures, and climate control. "I enjoy that various ages of children can have fun at our playground," says co-owner Christine. "Infants, toddlers, and school-age children all can find things to do."
Of course, they didn't just design the place with kids in mind?they also wanted to make the experience enjoyable for families. An open floor design provides clear sight lines for parents, in addition to plenty of room for kids to run, crawl, or pretend to be late to a meeting. Christine adds: "Parents with multiple children tell us they love the visibility of the play area, as they can watch more than one child at once."
