TALLADEGA, Ala. - Talladega Superspeedway will combine two of America's greatest pastimes - building blocks and superhero action - when The Lego Batman Movie headlines Kids Movie Night on Saturday, Oct. 13, during the track's doubleheader NASCAR Playoff weekend.
Kids Movie Night, which was introduced last fall, will commence after the running of the Talladega 250 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event and Foodland/Food Giant Qualifying for the 1000Bulbs.com 500.

A (FREE) Saturday or Sunday ($50 off regular pricing to the 1000Bulbs.com 500) kids ticket is required for entry.
The memorable experience will be enhanced with games, face painting and a special visit from a couple of superheroes.

Light concessions will be available for purchase, and FREE parking will be provided at the FOX Sports 1 Dome for movie night only.
To add to the race weekend's festivities for families, there will be a private Kids Autograph Session in the FOX Sports 1 Dome prior to the movie showing.
