Free or Cheap Summer movies for the kids South Shore Boston 2017

Some movie theaters on the South Shore offer free or discount rates for kids movies during the 2017 summer season.   (Check out the cheap  & free South Shore Boston Fun Guide 2017)Free or Cheap Summer movies for the kids South Shore Boston 2017

Most movie theater will be playing the big summer blockbusters, but don’t expect them to include these in the free or very cheap summer movie program. Free summer movie programs typically feature G- or PG-rated movies that have already been released on DVD. However kids really don’t care-they just LOVE going to the movies.

Free and cheap summer movies for kids are usually shown early in the day to leave the screens available for other movies later in the day. Everyone loves free stuff. So if you’re planning to take the kids to a free or cheap showing, be sure to get there early. Many summer camps will show up. I would recommend getting there 30-40 minutes before the show starts. Many summer movie programs are run on a first-come, first-serve basis. Don’t miss out by showing up at the last minute.

Be prepared to spend the same amount of money for a bag of popcorn during the free show as you would at a showing of the latest movies.
