One of our favorite family fun activities is going to the movies. So when we learned that Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Raleigh was hosting a family party for THE LION KING, we could not wait to go on this family movie date to see my all-time favorite Disney Movie! If you asked my husband he would tell you how I watched it all day, every day, 3 times a day with my daughter when she was born. Prior to her being born, I have always loved the movie but becoming a mother to my own cub (we are both Leos/team August babies) gave me my own circle of life moment. I even gave her a Lion King themed birthday party when she turned 3 and she stll loves her Simba plush doll that she got as a gift back then. Now she is almost 8 and we could not wait to celebrate with Alamo Drafthouse.
Hakuna Matata 🦁 Y’all! #HeighPartyof3 Then (2014) & Now (2019) at The Lion King Family Party at Alamo Drafthouse Raleigh
Family Party |The Lion King
What is a “family party”? It’s a fun and super-unique way for kids to partake in games/activities before seeing the movie. There was no better way as a family to celebrate the biggest Disney live-action remake than with Alamo,
where you can enjoy dining while watching the movie in the comfort of your seat. The party begins at 9:45am in the Video Vortex lobby, with screening at 10:30am
. They had a karaoke setup along with some arts and crafts stations. I enjoyed getting on the mic and singing “Hakuna Matata” and my daughter loved decorating a crown for her King Dad. The party was such a fun experience and we enjoyed The Lion King movie! Check out my photos I shared on Facebook>>here

Did you know that during the summer, Alamo is hosting Alamo Kids Camp, where families can choose the price they pay to see their favorite family-friendly films on the big screen and give back to the local community all at the same time! Guests choose their ticket price of $1, $3 or $5, with all of the ticket sales donated to local nonprofits designated by each Alamo Drafthouse location. Since 2015, the Alamo Kids Camp program has sent nearly $500,000 back into local communities, with more than $150,000 raised last summer alone!
Alamo Kids Camp movies are shown daily, Monday through Friday, during matinee hours. Most Alamo Kids Camp screenings are for kids ages 3 and up, but some locations are All Ages.
