Tips for Guncles: Kids First Free Movies at Starz

Guncles (gay uncles) always have to be on the lookout for fun and reasonably-priced activities to do with the nieces and nephews and here's a great one that takes place every Saturday at 10:30 a.m. at the Starz Film Center.

Embark on a fun-filled excursion for the whole family when you attend this Saturday morning series with two guarantees: the films are rated G, and entrance is totally free.

This Saturday, February 28, the featured film will be 'Strawberry Shortcake: Happily Ever After.'

Strawberry and her friends bring two beloved fairy tales to life in magical adventures filled with very berry fun. In "Sleeping Beauty," Brambleberry Fairy (Angel Cake) feels neglected and casts a spell that puts Princess Strawberry Rose to sleep. The Princess's fairy friends (Appleberry, Rainbowberry, Gingerberry, Tangerinaberry and Orangeberry) aren't able to awaken her. It's up to Prince Huckleberry to work his magic and teach Brambleberry Fairy an important lesson in friendship and listening.
The enchantment continues in "A Princess Named Rap." Princess Rapunzel's (Rainbow Sherbet) teacher is disturbed by her non-royal interests especially her fascination with ships and navigation. But when the teacher's rowboat is swept out to sea, "Rap" shows everyone she has the right stuff to rule her kingdom.
