Free and Low Cost Summer Movies

While it's great to get outside and play in the summertime, sometime kids (and parents) need a little down time. A great way to get out of the heat and still have fun is to see a movie. Some local theaters around the Bay Area offer free summer movies, or very low cost movies.

Regal Theaters have many locations and off free G and PG second run movies on Tuesday and Wednesdays. To see if there is a participating theater near you, you can visit their Free Family Film Festival schedule web-page. Not all Regal theaters are participating this year, including some that have participated in the past.

AMC Theaters have a similar program with movies for $1.00. For their list of participating theaters and the movies they will be showing, their Summer MovieCamp website is here.

Cinemark (Century Theaters) also have $1.00 movies for kids this summer. If you plan to attend most of the shows, they also offer a prepaid 10 week Summer Movie Clubhouse card for $5.00.

Hi Catherine,

I ran across your site, Fund Stuff for Bay Area Kids, while doing some research for an event going on in San Jose. Such a great resource for fun and educational things to do with your kids! The reason I'm writing is to let you know about a neat event that Macy's is putting on giving girls a chance to take a dance lesson from the famous Rockettes. Parents of pre-teen girls would probably appreciate this information.

On Saturday, August 14, Macy's Valley Fair in San Jose invites kids and shoppers to Dance with the Rockettes at 2:00pm as the ladies will share free dance instruction (just how DO they synchronize all those high kicks?) as well as secrets on what it takes to be a world-famous Rockette. There also will be plenty of opportunities for photos following the Dance with the Rockettes experience and each young dancer who joins in the fun will receive an "Honorary Rockette" certificate.

As an added incentive, any shopper who spends $50 at Macy's the day of the event will receive a free pair of tickets to the Rockettes Radio City Christmas Spectacular coming to Oracle Arena on 12/8 & 12/9! Additionally, there will be a drawing to win a chance for an exclusive VIP Meet and Greet with the Rockettes as well as 4 tickets to the Oracle Arena show at this event.

If you need any more information including photos, ticket discount info and tour dates, please visit: http://bit.ly/MacysRockettes

I hope this sounds like something your readers might be interested in. As someone who traveled to NYC every Holiday Season to see the Rockettes as a kid, I would have been thrilled to have this opportunity. We'd love to get the word out about this exciting family-friendly event and give so many kids the wonderful opportunity to dance with a Rockette! It is truly the chance of a lifetime.

Let me know if you have any questions!
