Summer movies are a great way to take a break from the hot sun, eat some popcorn and enjoy a movie with your kids! And, many large theaters participate in FREE or very inexpensive Summer Film Festivals with fun titles like Rio2, How to Train Your Dragon, The BoxTrolls, The LEGO Movie, Mr. Peabody & Sherman and lots more.
Here’s a roundup of the ones I know about but be sure to call your local theater if you don’t see yours listed here 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, please feel free to share it in the comments with any info or link you can provide and I will add it to the post.
When you’re making plans, 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. Some of these programs may require you to enter your location first to see a schedule and list of movies. Hopefully the links below will help get you started…
If you are near an REI Cinema, check out their FREE Summer Movies on Tuesday & Wednesday at 10 am & 11 am. This summer’s schedule starts June 9th & 10th with Mr. Peabody & Sherman. For more details and a complete list of movies scheduled, go HERE.
