June Checklist Item: Watch an Alamo Kids Camp Movie on the Big Screen
The Alamo Drafthouse's annual Summer Kids Camp is a film series of screenings, designed specifically for families, that is affordable and fun for all with a mix of new favorites and classic kid-friendly films.
New for this year is a “choose-your-own-ticket price” model ranging from $1 to $3 per person—you choose the amount! This new model not only allows tickets to be purchased online, in advance with reserved seating, but also 100 percent of ticket sales will be donated to local nonprofits helping families. Now, families can have summer fun while also helping their communities. Some of the inaugural nonprofit beneficiaries include: Creative Action (Austin, TX), The South Plains Food Bank (Lubbock, TX), Kalamazoo Loaves and Fishes (Kalamazoo, MI), and the YMCA (Houston, TX).
Kids Camp screenings are open to ages 3 and up. Please, no infants (parents, check out Baby Day screenings instead, which takes place every Tuesday at Alamo Village, South Lamar, Lakeline and Slaughter for shows that start before 2 p.m.).
All children must be accompanied by an adult. The regular “No Talking” policy is still in effect, so noisy families may be asked to leave.
