Free or Cheap Summer Movies for Kids

It has become a summer tradition over the past several years for several of the large movie chains to offer free kids movies during the summer months. This summer is no exception but there are a few changes as some theaters are now offering these movies at a very low admission cost, not a great change but one that I can understand in a struggling economy.

Regal Theatres Summer Movie Express

For the past several years this has been known as the Regal Theatres Free Family Film Festival but this year it has become the Regal Theatres Summer Movie Express. The name change is not the only change in the summer movie program, as this year the theatre is now charging $1 admission to the movies.

This year’s movies will be shown on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings at 10 AM. The movie selections this year will include Open Season 2, Percy Jackson and The Olympians, Marmaduke, Ramona and Beezus, Gulliver’s Travel, Nanny McPhee Returns, Tale of Despereaux, Muppets From Space, Chronicles of Narnia, Alpha and Omega, and Megamind.

The Great Escape Summer Kids’ Movies 2011

The Great Escape is back with their Summer Kids’ Movies program for 2011 and offers PG family friendly movies free of charge throughout the summer. The days and times for the shows vary from theater to theater.

Among the movies that will be shown this summer at The Great Escape are Despicable Me, Megamind, Shrek The Final Chapter, How to Train Your Dragon, Yogi Bear, Nanny McPhee Returns, Narnia: Dawn Treader, Marmaduke, Ramona and Beezus, and Cats & Dogs 2.
