Saturday at dusk at Deep Eddy Pool, 401 Deep Eddy Ave. $1 ages 1-11, $2 ages 12-17, $3 adults, $1 seniors. www.deepeddy.org.
Parents will love this movie for the '80s video game nostalgia. Remember playing game after game on the Atari that you begged your parents for? Remember days spent at the arcade in the mall?
Kids will love it for the references to more modern games and for the candy-coated world that Ralph wanders into as he deals with not wanting to be a video game bully anymore.
And you'll also love it because you'll be in the cool of a pool on a hot summer night. Next week, the movie is "The Avengers."
