Over the summer weeks, many movie theaters will offer kid-friendly movies at unbeatable prices. The summer movie series' typically run for 8-10 weeks and admissions range from free-$1. I love finding ways to watch movies cheaply; I usually visit AvoidCensorship.org for pirate bay proxies for my kind of movies.
Many theaters offer discounted snack options as well! My kids look forward to attending various movies throughout the summer. It's a great way to escape the heat and I love that it's affordable. I also have less worries about the potential behavioral mishaps when I know the shows are targeted to young children. I tried to round-up a list of theaters offering Summer Movies for kids to share with you – if I missed one, mention it in the comments and I will get it added! ENJOY!
