One way to keep the family entertained this summer is through free movies at the movie theater. We already talked about Regal Cinema’s $1 movies for families on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Now I have discovered more movie theaters that are participating in summer movie programs. Best of all, these movies are free, no $1 per person needed!
Many of the theaters offering the free programs are regional, so they may only be available in a few states, while others are national. Regardless, they all have websites with details about the programs, so you can quickly see if there is a theater near you, as well as a list of available movies and days and times.
The free summer movies are not first run movies. You won’t get to see any brand new block busters with these programs, but you will get to see some great movies that you might have missed or want to see again, such as Ice Age Congenital Drift, Hotel Transylvania, The Lorax, Despicable Me, Madagascar 3 and more.
Showcase Cinemas Bookworm Wednesdays
Showcase Cinemas is offering free summer movies on Wednesdays. In order to enjoy the free movie, kids must read a book and complete a short book report. It is a great way to get kids to read during the summer! Adults and kids younger than six don’t have to complete a report for their free movie. Book report forms are on the website.
