I saw a guy wearing a “I miss live music” T-shirt last week, and I realized how many things we all took for granted before COVID.

Well, I’m happy to reintroduce you to some “normal” ways of life. There are multiple in-person events around town this summer, so if you’re looking for something new to do, try one of these.

Some tips: Bring lawn chairs or blankets for comfortable seating, check the hosts’ social media for updates on the weather, and pack snacks in case lines are long for food.

Every Wednesday through Aug. 4, Cinemark in Fairfax has a Summer Movie Clubhouse where kids’ movies are only $1.50 each. The remaining movies in the line-up include “Angry Birds 2,” “Dora and the Lost City of Gold,” “Minions” and “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.”

Bonus: This theater has reclining seats, and they’re spaced out.
