Kids Movie Roundup Through the End of June 2014

When you're in need of a boredom buster for the kids and a break from the heat, there's nothing better cooling down in a movie theater with some popcorn and some laughs.  Free summer movies offer a great way to keep the whole family entertained and occupied for a few hours, while giving mom and dad a little break. And lucky for us, we've got plenty of free or discounted summer movie programs around Austin to choose from!

Here's your roundup of free and discounted kid's summer movies through the end of June:

Alamo Kids Camp- Free 
The Alamo Drafthouse offers FREE kids movies through their Alamo Kids Camp Series screenings! Tickets are available at the box office on the day of the show, and seating is first come, first served. A parent or guardian must accompany their child to any movie. And do note that this is not for the very little ones -- unless you go on a Tuesday. No children under the age of 3 will be admitted (except on Tuesday's Baby Day when all ages are welcome to attend).

Alamo Drafthouse showtimes change pretty frequently, so it's best to go to their website to verify times and locations. Here are the upcoming movies offered:
