Many haven’t been shown on the big screen in years. As of now, the schedule runs through December 18. For December, they’re also screening holiday movies on Saturdays at 10 a.m.

I’ve included all sorts of activities, some free and some with an admission fee. For some of the pricier attractions, I noted if there’s a Groupon available (and you should always check Groupon yourself for those not marked, as new Groupons pop up from time to time).
This list is by no means comprehensive as there are a gazillion spots across the metro area. Know of something that should be in the list? Just email email@example.com. [Read more…] about Indoor Play Areas For Kids Around Denver
