FREE and Reduced Price Kids Summer Movies for 2012

These days, it’s really expensive to take your family of 4 to the movies. Be prepared to spend upwards of around $35 plus any concessions. However, several of our area theaters are offering FREE and $1 movies for children, and, of course for the adults as well. There is no catch. There are, however, a couple of rules of thumb to follow:
  1. These theaters are doing this at an extremely low cost or completely FREE so please support them by buying concessions, such as popcorn, candy, and drinks.
  2. Respect the theaters by throwing away your trash
  3. Respect other people by not talking, staying off your cell phone, and keeping your kids quiet. Just because the movie is free, doesn’t mean you should let your kids run wild or talk through the movie.

There are 3 area theaters that are offering movies. All movies start at 10:00 am. See the schedules for each theater below for the rest of the summer:
