April Trivia Questions for Kids & Adults

April Trivia questions can help your memory.
April Trivia questions can help your memory.

April Trivia questions can be fun for kids and adults.  Last month we looked at some questions to try on your family and friends. This month we head to the category of movies. Check them out. Do you think they are easy or not-so-easy? Don’t forget trivia players that sometimes trivia answers can be about information in the other part of the question. Example: In question 1 the question asks “Which movie won the Academy Award for Best Picture in 2009”? However, another way of asking the question could be “In what year did the movie The Hurt Locker win the Academy Award for Best Picture? Would you know it was 2009? Enjoy the fun!

For my Wizard teammates, I’ve highlighted in yellow those questions that I remember being asked. However, I don’t remember if we answered them correctly.  Oh, my memory!
