Burbank, CA –- Yesterday, the Dreamworks company made it a special day for the local kids to enjoy a free, early screening of Kung Fu Panda 3. Working in connection with Burbank's Martial Arts History Museum, over 200 kids and families got a front row seat at the AMC 16 theater.
The “Panda premiere” featured a special red carpet for the kids to pose in front of, face painting to look like Po or Tigress, panda-looking balloons and panda ears to wear throughout the festivities. “We are so honored to be part of the film community. Dreamworks has been very kind to the Museum and provided us with free tickets for all our kids plus free food to help out the families,” says Museum president Michael Matsua.
As part of the early release, kids were given free movie posters and got to enjoy a live transmission of the actual red carpet event taking place at the same time in Los Angeles.
“My son was so excited about the premiere. It was the first time he came to my bed and woke me up early so that we can get to the theater on time. Thank you to Dreamworks and the Martial Arts History Museum for making this a fun event to enjoy. He even got his face painted like Tigress,” Crystal Santos.
The Martial Arts History Museum provides a lot of different and unique activities for kids and families. It's a place for learning art, history and culture and kids love the interesting and colorful items at the museum. Complete with scavenger hunts and more, kids have fun while learning.
“I feel the museum is a big part of the Burbank community. We do CPR classes, work with challenged groups, we create a fun learning experience for the whole family. It is the donations from the community that we need to continue bringing unique events such as this. Please consider donating to the museum,” says Matsuda.
