Kids Movies Summer Programs
What are summer movies for kids programs?
Movie theaters offer summer fun programs with a series of previously released movies for kids to attend each week of the summer. They’re usually movies that have been already released on DVD, and are making a comeback for some summer movie fun!
How does a summer movie series for kids work?
Every theater is a little different. But essentially, you’ll either need to buy a pass for the summer, or you can get tickets for individual kids summer movies. Feel free to check online, and also call your theaters to find the best way to purchase tickets for this special summer movie event.
How much do summer movies for kids cost?
There’s a good chance you’ll need to verify with your local theater. However, most run $1-$3 per movie ticket. $1 movie theaters are known to rock these well with $1 (or less) ticket prices.
One of our local theaters is charging $5 for 8 movies. It’s the best deal I’ve ever seen!
Most major theaters charge $1-$3.50. My favorite is the theaters who include a popcorn and drink bundle with the ticket for $3-$4 total.
Check for local prices. But generally speaking, you’ll pay 10%-30% of a standard ticket price.
When are the discounted kids movies shown?
For official times, check with local theaters.
You’ll find most do a morning time on a weekday. Some include a showing at noon or an early afternoon time.
They’re essentially utilizing theaters during their least busy times, and times kids would normally be in school.
