School's out but kids can still use their noodles — to float while they watch a movie. The popular Dive-In Movies series returns to the St. Pete Beach Aquatic Center, with its huge Olympic swimming lanes, a spray play area for kids and two large water slides. Bring noodles, floaties and chairs to watch the movie on the big screen. This Friday is Disney's Monsters University, but alert! June 27 is Frozen, so expect a full pool. Others in the lineup include Cars 2 (July 11), The Lego Movie (July 18) and The Nut Job (July 25). Gates open at 8 p.m. and the movie starts after sunset. It's $4 at 7701 Boca Ciega Drive, St. Pete Beach. (727) 363-9264.
