We Just Can’t Wait for the King

Twenty-five years ago, Disney took us out to the Pride Lands of Africa where we fell in love with a feisty and adorable cub named Simba. Now, if you are anything like us, then you are eagerly anticipating the release of Disney’s The Lion King as a photorealistic computer remake of the original animated movie. The Lion King officially releases on Friday, July 19th but AMC Theatres is hosting Opening Night on Thursday, July 18th. Tickets are available hereand you can choose from Dolby Cinema, IMAX, Real  3D, or Digital, so don’t wait and reserve your seats now and witness the majestic wonder of The Lion King.

AMC Destin Commons 14 does not get to have all the fun! Stores at Destin Commons are jumping on board to join the pack. We visited PandoraBuild-a-Bear Workshop, and Books-A-Million just to get a glimpse of the great merchandise that they are offering that feature your favorite characters from The Lion King.
