Toys on the Square’s 8,000-square-foot space and 50 paint-your-own pottery stations accommodate unusually popular birthday boys and girls as they unleash their rabid creativity alongside all their friends. Artistes can start by choosing a piece of pottery from the hundreds of available mugs, vases, plates, and busts of the cast of Who’s the Boss ($7–$20 for the average piece), then lay claim to their favorite color glazes. Toys on the Square injects fresh inspiration into the air with design books, stencils, and stamps, and the tile wall lets painters preview what each finished color looks like. Once Da Vinci devotees have signed their name to their objet d'art with a permanent glaze pencil, the staff will coat it with a layer of clear over-glaze and then fire it in a kiln. All glazes are nontoxic and lead free, ensuring that finished pieces are safe for eating and drinking. Pieces will be ready for pickup or shipping in three weeks.
As more theaters converted to high-quality digital projection, FunTime Cinemas knew it had to keep up with the times. There was one small problem: the cost. Independent from the industry behemoths, the community-focused FunTime Cinemas needed some help to fund the conversion and maintain its affordable ticket prices. So it reached out to its patrons through the Dollars for Digital campaign, which helped raise enough money for all three theaters to become 100% digital. The updated projection allows FunTime to continue showcasing the newest major releases, as well as special one-time screenings of smaller features, with crisp picture and sound at deeply discounted prices.
