Great news for anyone taking care of little ones during the summer: The annual summer movie programs for kids are up and running!
This is a great way to beat the summer heat for very little cost. Many theaters offer free movies or charge a reduced amount. These movies are rated either G or PG.
For a great database of the area summer movie programs, head to the Free and Cheap Family Movies database on WRAL's Go Ask Mom blog.
You can search by county or for a specific theater. Sarah has done an excellent job of including all the important details like location, dates of movies, start times, cost at each theater, the specific movies that will be shown (if available) and much more.
Keep in mind that many of these shows fill up fast. Sarah, with Go Ask Mom suggests that you get to the theater early to buy your tickets.
When my girls were younger, we went to many of the free and $1 movies and there were usually camps and day cares that filled the seats quickly.
