Free and Cheap Summer Family Movie Round Up

Movie theaters around the country will be showing free and discounted kids' and family movies throughout the summer.

My son and I plan to take full advantage of the free and almost-free movies in our hometown

At some theaters, tickets are free; others charge $3 for popcorn, admission and a drink. On a hot summer day, there's nothing like sitting in an air conditioned theater and munching on popcorn.

The thermometer on my car said the temp reached 97 degrees today. That may be an exaggeration, but tomorrow we'll be headed to Carousel Cinema to see the SpongeBob movie

For my Greensboro, N.C. readers, I've compiled a Google calendar listing movies and showtimes for theaters throughout the Triad. Please check back often, as I'll be adding additional theaters and other free and cheap kid-friendly events.

The calendar is best viewed in the Monthly or Agenda mode. Click on a movie title and you can see where it's playing on that date.

If you don't happen to live in Greensboro, you can check out movie schedules online at the Web sites for Cinemark, Carmike, Regal Cinemas, Southern Theatres, and AMC Theaters. (If I've missed any chains, let me know!)
