2019 FREE Kids’ Summer Movies Near Me

Check out the FREE Kids’ Summer Movies playing near me in 2019 — the next installment of our FREE summer activities for kids near me series!

We love catching up on movies over the summer months.  The school year always seems to busy that we often miss seeing some of our favorite flicks on the big screen.

There are a number of theaters that offer free (or cheap!) movies for kids and families during the summer months — see what’s playing near you!

2019 Free & Cheap Summer Movies for Kids Near Me

There’s nothing like ducking into an air-conditioned movie theater on a hot summer day!

It’s always a fun way to spend some time together.

And there’s always a few kids books made into movies each year too (a fun way to fit in some reading time before seeing the film).

Another great place to look for FREE movies to take on the go (along with free access to books too) is the Amazon FreeTime Unlimited FREE Trial!!  Kids ages 3 – 12 will have access to all types of age-appropriate movies, ebooks, educational apps & their favorite learning tv shows too!

Take the opportunity to catch one of your favorite movies this summer at a theater near you – just click the theater links below to see what’s playing:
