This event also aims to raise funds and awareness for the nonprofit group that operates the theatre; Preservation of the Egyptian Theatre (PET). Traditional indoor party games will warm everyone up, followed by a lively board game competition sponsored by On Board Games featuring kid’s favorites such as Operation, Battleship, Candyland, and Trouble. Families are welcome to bring their own board games to play as well. “My kids love board games. I think it’ll be a blast!” says Catherine Beckman, a DeKalb mother of two. There will be prizes and a raffle will be held for larger prizes. Papa John’s pizza, pop, popcorn and candy will be available for purchase. A silent auction will feature the artwork of attending children. We invite kids from 5-14 to bring a letter-sized creation for submission, or create their submission on the spot. A classic animated family film, “Gulliver’s Travels,” will be shown at 1:00pm. Kids who attend the free game day starting at 11:00 a.m. will get into the movie for free. The general public is also invited to attend the movie for a minimal cost of $3.00 per person. Seating will start at approximately 12:30pm. The Egyptian Theatre in downtown DeKalb, located at 135 N. Second Street, has just been named one of the “150 Illinois Great Places” by the American Institute of Architects. This phenomenal theatre hosts all types of events, including concerts, plays, dance shows, movies, weddings, parties, tours, and special events.
