With the chaotic summer on-the-go schedule, our family is always hungry and always looking for ways to reconnect and come back together as a family. The opportunity to sit and relax without attaching ourselves to a to-do list is always a nice change of pace. Outdoor movies always seem to allow for that time to rest, relax and enjoy without much effort making it the perfect summer escape. In conjunction with a local Walmart, Kellogg’s hosted a Nighttime Cereal Cinema in the parking lot complete with a cereal and milk bar. #CollectiveBias #goodnightsnack
With a variety cereal choices, toppings such as marshmallows and raisins, and the option of milk and water, the Cereal and Milk Bar was well thought-out and provided the cute option of cereal bowls or the popcorn-esque square containers. I loved the change of pace from butter-drenched popcorn and giving the boys a plethora of options to choose from. Cereal is a great way to change up movie time at home also. Set up your own cereal bar and let the family build their perfect bowl!
Cereal dispensers lined the two tables and made up two separate stations to ensure that there was not a high level of crowding by the bar. I was also very impressed that staff there came behind quickly and cleaned up the area when extra cereal spilled out of the containers. The area remained neat, tidy and provided a great space to fill our bowls.
Jack picked his own and talked quite a bit about the “rainbow” kind (Froot Loops). His Good Night Snack usually ends up being an all day snack because he seems to always be hungry!
Since they were playing The Amazing Spider-Man 2, one of our absolute favorite parts of the night were when they brought out a Spider-Man to visit with families and kids. Jack had a blast learning the ropes from the webbed man himself! (Don’t mind Jack’s belly showing, he was in his pjs and ready for the movie to begin!)
One of my favorite elements was on the table. The staff used cereal as a centerpiece and I thought this would make a great idea for a slumber party. Set up a cereal bar for nighttime snacking. Use a variety of toppings and make cereal the hero, such as in a large glass vase as a centerpiece. Encourage mixing!
Jack’s favorite ended up being the Kellogg’s Mini Wheats Strawberry Version. He has a thing for all things pink and this was no exception.
I made a beeline for the Kellogg’s Krave cereal. Surprise! There’s chocolate inside!
Serve cereal as a lighter movie alternative. Guests will love the variety and Kellogg’s offers the perfect complement to any great movie celebration or slumber party. The outdoor movie aspect was perfect. The big screen under the stars and a night with one of our favorite superheroes. Even the weather cooperated! We absolutely loved this as an alternative to our usual night out.
If you have the opportunity to attend an outdoor movie, I have a few quick tips:
1. Arrive early so you can stake out great seats.
2. Bring a snack! Cereal mixed as a trail mix in a small bag.
3. Find a movie that all the kids in your family will love. This will make the night so much easier to enjoy if you find a movie that your whole family would love to see!
What’s your favorite way to enjoy Kellogg’s cereal? Have you used it as a good night snack or while watching a movie?

Looks like it was a really fun event. I need to get myself some of those cereal dispensers for sure. #client
