With Summer in full swing all throughout St. Louis, Dinner and Movie is switching things up, suggesting that we take a family excursion to an incredible ice creamery that has something sweet for the children to enjoy, + something really special and tasty for Mom and Dad too, as we all attempt to live life to the fullest, after having been cooped up in our homes together for far too long.

Anticipating everyone’s excitement at getting to back to the Movie Theater Experience, rumor has it that everyone will be able to venture back into theaters this month, with a few “new normal” protocols put into place, just to keep us safe.

And even with the postponement of many Blockbusters early this year, many of the Film Studios are still primed to give us a few Summer Blockbusters that are destined to make this shortened Summer movie season as enjoyable as possible.

Now, whether you prefer to start off your family excursion with a sweet treat or end the day that way, you can get your ice cream fix on regardless of where you live, by stopping by one of these super tasty, ice-creamy places...

Now that we have the sweet part of day planned out, what should we venture to the theater to see?  How about a LIVE Action remake of the culturally significant 1998 Disney animated classic, which found itself bumped from its March 2020 release due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and which is finally being released this month on a big screen near you…

MULAN – Rated PG-13

Brought to the screen by acclaimed Director Niki Caro, we venture into the life of one of the greatest Warriors China has ever known. 

When the Emperor of China degrees that one man per family must serve his Imperial Army to defend China from its Northern invaders, Mulan steps forward as the eldest daughter for her ailing father, who in the past had served as an honored warrior.  Disguising herself as a man, Mulan sets forth to show that her inner-strength and true potential have yet to be tapped, transforming into the warrior she was destined to be, gaining the respect of not only her father, but her entire Country.

Starring Yifei Liu, Donnie Yen, Jet Li and Jason Scott Lee, Mulan is scheduled for release on July 24, 2020.
