Celebrating the Barbie Movie in Tulsa
Well, I keep seeing fun, Barbie-themed events so figured it would be nice to round them up in one place! Are you looking forward to the “Barbie” movie? Will you see it opening weekend (starting July 21)? Do you have your outfit planned?
I’ve seen several people wondering on Facebook if the Barbie movie is for kids, and figured I’d better bring that up since a lot of the activities TulsaKids promotes is for kids. I obviously haven’t seen it yet, so just keep in mind that it’s rated PG-13 for “suggestive references and brief language.” Common Sense Media will be posting their review on Friday to help parents wondering if they should take their kids to the movie: commonsensemedia.org/movie-reviews/barbie
In either case, some of these events are more geared toward adults, so keep that in mind as well.
