Summer Movies: Free and Discounted Flicks for your Family!

Summer movies are just a thing. Right?!

Each summer we look forward to all the offerings at the local theaters and parks. Sometimes we get to revisit an old favorite or catch up on one we missed. Most movie theaters around town have discounted or free summer movies and many parks offer a fun movie night here and there as well.

Wherever you are in town grab your kids, your snacks, your blankets, and (as they used to sing) let’s go to the movies! (I just dated myself there didn’t I?)
