There’s good news for parents, babysitters and all the mini cinephiles out of school for the season. Cinemark, Regal Theaters and AMC are all offering discounts on children’s matinees for the summer months.
For just $1 per ticket (in most cases), you can take the family out to a variety of kids’ movies at participating locations around the country. Showtimes and specific films vary, so be sure to check with your local theater before heading out. Most of the options are for second-run movies, but that’s the great thing about kids: they’ll have fun anyway.
Kids’ Movie Ticket Deals for the Summer
Beginning May 27th, Cinemark is offering a summer movie package that makes going to the movies with kids way more affordable. For only $5, you can nab a matinee punch card good for 10 family-friendly movies. Alternatively, you can buy a la carte tickets for kids’ movies at $1 a pop.
This deal is only applicable for specific kid-friendly films, including options like The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, Despicable Me 3, How to Train Your Dragon and the seasonally appropriate Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation.
Exact showings will vary by location, though. Additionally, the offer is only good Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 10 a.m.
Regal Theaters is offering a similar deal on kids’ movies this summer through its Summer Movie Express program. For $1 at participating locations, you can catch family-friendly movies like The Lego Batman Movie, The House with a Clock in its Walls or Paddington 2.
This offer is good for the 10 a.m. matinees on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Not to be outdone, AMC Theaters is also getting in on the summer movie game. For $4, you can get a movie ticket and a KidsPack of snacks and a drink from concessions on Wednesday mornings — a savings of up to $16.
