We saw a movie for the first time at B&B Theatres in Ankeny with my mom who's visiting this week. My kids had been wanting to see the new Minions movie and the 10:45 showing was the perfect time to try their Screen Play theater because there was only one other family there.
The play area is recommended for kids ages 2-8, however that's including the little kid area at the front of the theater. We saw a little girl struggling to climb inside the tall play structure and her mom had to climb inside to get her out. Don't forget to arrive 30 minutes before the show starts to get the maximum amount of play time.
