Hoot, a Columbus family tradition! Founded in January 2011, Hoot takes place the last Saturday of every month at 10AM and features kid-friendly short films from around the world, paired with live music by the Shazzbots, time for dancing, and lobby activities like themed coloring stations. Admission is always free with a canned food donation to The Open Shelter, an advocacy center and day services shelter for homeless and marginally-housed people in Central Ohio.
A part of Hoot since its founding, The Shazzbots have been entertaining kiddos and parents of all ages with their unique brand of music, adventure, and fun for more than 10 years. With 3 full-length albums, a triple Emmy winning TV show, and thousands of live shows under their jumpsuited belts, the ‘Bots are no rookies when it comes to family entertainment.
“Being a part of Hoot every month could not be more fun for us as a band. We love entertaining these kids every month, and connecting our music to the kid-friendly short films programmed by the film center only makes the experience better for everyone,” said Ian Hummel, the Shazzbots founder and lead singer better known as “Captain Captain.” “The film center team also operates a ‘dance cam’ at each and every Hoot, so the kids get to see themselves dancing on the big screen. It’s a blast!”
