As an independently run cinema, Movie Buff Theatre enjoys a freedom that helps keep prices low and schedules flexible, letting them opt out of screening PSAs on recommended candy-bar consumption levels. Fourteen screens flicker with first-run films, indie hits, and family favorites. They also regularly host midnight showings of recent box-office hits. For the younger set, the theater offers free children's films on Wednesdays in the summer. At the concession stand, moviegoers enjoy bottomless popcorn and sodas.
Running strong for 37 years, the Indianapolis Greek Fest collects Hellenic food, music, and tradition under the benevolent bulk of the Holy Trinity Church. Tote along family members or a triad of friends to nosh on Greek cuisine while gazing at the fancy and authentic footwork of costumed dance troupes. Spiced hunks of lamb twirl send savory aromas wafting far and wide, and patrons can yank flavor from the ocean by nibbling on fried calamari. Flaky and feta-cheesy spanakopita rests easily between fingers, and flaming saganaki bounces frantically between daredevil fingers. Sugary bites, from honey-drenched baklava to buttery koulourakia, cloy pleasingly at the palate, and thirsty throats can quaff a Dionysian refreshment and revive parched stomachs with wine and beer. Transmute Grecian enthusiasm into dance by bumping up against the energetic sounds of Greek band Kosta and the Wave, or delve into the rich, storied and ornately painted tradition of Greek Orthodox Christianity with regular church tours of the Trinitarian sanctuary throughout the fest.

The instructors at Wright's FUNdamentals, an offshoot of Wright's Gymnastics Academy, strive to build enthusiasm for gymnastics, dance, and fitness among kids younger than 9 years old at their two Greenwood facilities. Here, tykes plunge down slides into ball pits, tumble on cushy mats, and swing from monkey bars and rings during open-gym sessions, which foster free-form frolicking throughout the indoor playscape.
For more structured bouts of energy expenditure, kids as young as 2 can hone their coordination, fitness, and summersaulting aptitude in a host of age-appropriate gymnastics and cheerleading classes. The Ninja Gym classes challenge boys to conquer military-style obstacle courses, using ninja-style moves to fend off any rogue cooties from the girls.
The squeak of athletic shoes. The swish of basketball nets. The resounding wallop of dodge balls connecting with their intended targets. These sounds are part of the regular soundtrack at Midwest Sports and Social Complex, where kids and adults alike work out their athletic affinities. Youth training sessions overseen by instructors Rhasim Ridley, a former Head Coach at Tarkanian Basketball Academy in Las Vegas, teach youngsters the fundamentals and advanced tactics of their chosen sport.
When the weather cooperates, staff members organize weekly outdoor competitive adult tournaments and three-on-three league games on two new, full-length basketball courts. Athletes can also join leagues for dodge ball games and street hockey, a worthy alternative to real hockey when ponds melt and hockey goals return to their underwater homes.
