The Wizard of Oz

The theater seats just 170, so get your ticket in advance. Bright Family Screening Room, Paramount Center, 559 Washington Sat. at 2 p.m.; Sun. at 7 p.m. Visit the website for the full schedule.

Warm Up at the Zoo
Forget the snow and ice for a little while at the Tropical Forest in the Franklin Park Zoo where it’s always 72 degrees. In January and February, the zoo hosts a story time every weekend for families. Kids will love to see the gorilla Kiki, her new baby, and the rest of her family, as well as tropical birds, ring-tailed lemurs, a warthog, a pygmy hippo and other animals. One Franklin Park Road, Boston. Story time is at 11:30 a.m. Visit the website for the full schedule.
