Pete's Dragon, Sword in the Stone and Quest for Camelot were just a few of the (now almost forgotten) kiddie videos that would occupy my time on hot summer days. Those were the days when renting a video meant spending a dollar for three days of blissful entertainment while chomping on Rocket pops and buttery popcorn. With summer in full swing and more than a few stressed-out parents, a free family night could be just the remedy. The Modern Kids-Summer Flicks Series presents Dragon Hunters at 6 p.m. Tuesday. This digitally animated film follows a daring young girl named Zoe on her quest with some heroic knights to brave a fearsome dragon. The film will be shown in the auditorium at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.
