Just in time for the 2012 Summer movie theaters across the country will be offering free or cheap movies for kids and parents to help great causes and help you cool down during the summer. Many theaters offer different movies each week and at a great price so be sure to check each one to see what theaters near you are participating. And enjoy the summer!
Regal Cinemas, United Artists and Edwards Theatres
Select theatres are again offering previously released G and PG movies every Tuesday and Wednesday this summer for only $1 admission! All movies start at 10am and run from June 26th through August 22nd. Some examples are Kung Fu Panda 2, Smurfs, Rio, Yogi Bear and Kit Kittredge: American Girl. To check whether your theatre is offering this special check here and search by zip code or state. A portion of all proceeds will benefit the Will Rogers Institute.
Centrury Theatres, CineArts and Tinseltown
Select theatres are offering 10 weeks of family films through their Summer Movie Clubhouse. There is a new film each week for only $5 for all 10 weeks IF you buy the tickets in advance (in theatres) or $1 if buying the day of the event. Since each theatre has the option to pick the date and times each week along with the movie so make sure you check the list of participating theatres. The $5 punch cards are available at the theatre box while supplies last so you will want to check your local theatre soon. Prices are the same for kids and adults so make sure you grab a punch card for yourself.
