Many large theaters participate in FREE or very inexpensive Summer Film Festivals. For me it is Rave Theaters and Austin and I have enjoyed many a free movie there. Our program starts June 14th and we can see a FREE movie every Tuesday or Wednesday at 10 am.You can call your local Rave Theater to see if yours is participating and a schedule of show times. I could not find the schedule on line, but a quick call to my local Rave and I was e-mailed the flyer in a flash. :)

My advice is to get to the theater early, as sometimes there are whole groups of children from day camps arriving and they can fill up the theaters fast. This summer they will be showing Megamind, Yogi Bear, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Marmaduke, Ramona & Beezus, Percy Jackson, The Lightning Thief, Chronicles of Narnia and Gulliver’s Travels.

Here’s a couple more programs I know about, and be sure to call your local theater if it is not one of them listed to ask if they offer any summer specials or FREE Movies. Or if you know offhand of any programs you want to share with other readers in the comments please feel free….

REGAL CINEMAS, UNITED ARTISTS & EDWARDS THEATERS SUMMER MOVIE EXPRESS

Movies will all be rated G or PG.  -Thanks Rebecca and Mommies With Cents!
