At her first talent competition, she came in second place to a 20-year old opera singer. As Jackie’s talents blossomed, she sought out more opportunities to perform for audiences. Eventually, she caught the attention of Grammy-winning producer David Foster when she won a regional competition that allowed her to sing as Foster accompanied

The latest 3D adventure will include the added dimension of “aromascope”, therefore creating the 4D effect.

sory experience with onscreen signals to prompt the audience to smell one of eight scents on a special card. The technology just requires an easy swipe of a finger to emit a scent instead of previous scratch ’n’ sniff versions. The film stars Jessica Alba (Little Fockers), Jeremy Piven (Entourage, RocknRolla), Antonio Banderas, and Ricky Gervais as the voice of the robot dog. The story centers on a mother, a former retired spy, who keeps that identity hidden from her clueless husband and whip-smart

twin stepchildren. However, when a villain called Timekeeper threatens to conquer the world, Marissa springs back into action as head of the OSS, home of the now-defunct Spy Kids Division. With help from some cool gadgets and two former spy kids, Rebecca and Cecil join the fight to save Earth. One of the characters in Spy Kids 4 is a young boy with an increased sense of smell due to a hearing impairment - so he has a nose for picking up clues to solve the thriller. This ties in the “aromascope” concept which is bound to make this a fun and engaging movie for the whole family!

Email to: While the majority of the listings are places where kids eat free some of the restaurants charge a small amount – in most occasions $.99 so they are not actually “free” but a very good deal nonetheless. You will also find that some of the restaurants where kids eat free have certain restrictions whether it be limited hours on a certain day, the number of kids eating free per purchasing adult or age restrictions. Please call the restaurant location you plan on attending to get your free kids meal before you pack the kids in the car to go.
