Watching movies with your kids can be a lot of fun and relatively cheap if you do it at home. But movie theaters are way too over priced these days, right? Wrong! This summer you can take your little ones to see a whole bunch of cheap and in some cases completely FREE movies.
A special thanks to Mary from Mission to Save for this list of Summer Movie Programs!
Check out the great summer movie programs below! My personal favorite is the one that requires your kids to have read a book to get a free ticket. Just make sure to check if your local theater is participating.
