Free (or Nearly Free) Summer Family Movies

I have the best save for all the Moms out there who need a little break this summer. Many area movie theaters are running free or $1.00 movies, which will come in really handy during those "Gotta get out of the house" days where the neverending pleas for "something to do" turn into neverending bickering to pass the time. Enjoy a cheap two hours of peace and quiet at the following...

AMC Theaters are running $1.00 movies. Go to AMC Summer Movie Camp to find the theater nearest you...

Families, schools and organizations alike are invited to see great kids' movies during AMC Summer MovieCamp. Available at select AMC theatres, this fun-filled program brings you:
  • $1 movies from June 25 - August 6
  • Shows starting at 10:00 a.m. every Wednesday
  • Great field trip opportunities - groups can purchase tickets one week in advance starting June 18 at the box office or online at participating theatres

Regal Entertainment Group is running a FREE FAMILY FILM FESTIVAL. There is a G and PG rated movies showing every Tuesday and Wednesday at 10:00 a.m, and admission is free on a first come, first serve basis.

For another "The kids are driving me nuts and I gotta get out of here" idea, the Wrightstown Village Library is running Movies by Moonlight. Held on Fridays at 8:30 p.m., bring your own blanket or lawn chair and enjoy the following movies under the stars:

July 3rd (THURSDAY) Spiderwick Chronicles

August 8th Nim's Island

September 5th Speed Racer

October 3rd Iron Man

These are a great way to break up the boredom, get everyone out of the house, and can come in especially handy on a rainy morning.

Thanks for posting these. I knew we had theaters around here that did that as well, and I found them thru your links! Helpful real estate tips and motherhood tips. I knew I found you for a reason!

LOL. I'm trying to do a series on things to do over the summer with kids. I've been doing ok, but I might crash and burn after a few more weeks :) I've told the kids I'll play hookey one day a week and we'll do a trip/activity. Gives us a morning without battles...
