Free and $1 Movies in August

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!

And if you're looking for more ways to keep the kids entertained, be sure to print out your own Austin Summer Fun Checklist for Kids for a great list of suggested local activities.

Here's your roundup of FREE and DISCOUNTED kids summer movies in August:

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.
