Kids Movie NOT just for kids…

wreck it raplhWe saw Wreck It Ralph – this is not just a kids movie.   So much fun to watch the young kids enjoy and along with the parents and adult kids.  It strikes a chord especially if you are a child of the video game era of the 80’s.  Soooo many great references to games and memories for the older “kids”.  We thought the “recognizable”  voices were perfect for each character.

Do you have family in town, the kids are off, and you are looking for something every age can enjoy together? This is a perfect solution.  A truly enjoyable  afternoon family matinée movie, a way for a to spend some time together, and of course, at Raleighwood, enjoy a meal as well.  Be sure to  try one of our home-made desserts or ice cream sundaes.  An easy affordable afternoon out with no clean up for YOU!

If you saw it and had some good reference lines to older games, songs, events or other movies, plus some of the fantastic trivia, let us know!

Beat the Heat…AC, Movies and Ice Cream!

The temperature’s rising…..we’re havin’ a heat wave! It’s too hot be outside. Beat the Heat, take yourself and the kids to a movie in an air-conditioned theater, for lunch or dinner and a movie… plus take advantage of today’s Raleighwood menu special Thursday – 99¢ Cinderella Ice Cream Sundae with each entrée order.

Did you know  air conditioning was born in 1902 when Willis Carrier, a mechanical engineer, developed and installed the first system in a publishing company in Brooklyn, New York. Carrier’s invention would eventually have a revolutionary impact on America.

The opening of the Rivoli in NY was widely advertised for its refrigerating/ air conditioning system. People lined up at the box office – curious about ‘cool comfort’ .  Through the 1950’s movie theaters advertised Air Conditioned right up with the movies on the marquee.

A great option for a blistering hot day – relax and enjoy a movie and a meal at Raleighwood!
