Search our free, cheap summer movie database

Posted June 8, 2010

It's just about time for many of the local movie theaters to open their free or really cheap family movie film festivals. So I've put it into a handy database for you complete with deals, schedules and other details.

The series typically run from mid-June to mid-August or so and feature G, but mostly PG films. Some theaters show one; others two. And they're shown in the morning.

Some tips before you go:

  • I've included the weekly schedule, but schedules and titles can always change. So if you have your heart set on seeing a moving, be sure to call ahead to make sure nothing has changed.
  • Get there early. As you can imagine, these movies fill up. And they really fill up if it's a popular movie and it's a rainy day. Many daycares and summer camps take their charges to these movies. So get there at least 30 minutes early and be ready for a packed house.
  • Tickets are first come, first served. Another reason to get their early.

I've also included outdoor movie series and theaters where the tickets are cheap all the time. And I know you'll feel free to email me if I've missed something and I'll add it to the list. Or just include it in the comments.

So here it is: Our free and cheap summer movie database.

    PS - and don't forget cheap movies in a vintage atmosphere at the Varsity on Franklin St. Usually at least one flick a week is family friendly too!
