Got a tight budget this spring but still want to get away from NYC? Consider a film-buffs weekend. The Ritz-Carlton, Westchester offers Saturday and Sunday outings to the Jacob Burns Film Center in Pleasantville for “Movies for Kids” a light-hearted movie series that presents classic family films. In April the theme is cats, featuring films such as The Three Lives of Thomasina, Puss in Boots and Disney’s That Darn Cat--all perfect for ages 4-9.

Teens can enjoy a night out with Friday Night Films at the Lab. Geared to teen-agers 14-18, this special program offers teens the chance to watch and then discuss popular films. And while their teens are entertained, parents can also enjoy a night at the movies with many award-winning art and first-run films to choose from.
