Free Family Movies in Katy All Summer!

It’s summer movie time in Katy! FREE summer movie time!

We love movies, and we especially love free activities. So you can bet we take advantage of free movies all summer long! No one is more excited for summer movie season than our family!

We’ve been taking our (now three year old) son to movies since he was just a few weeks old, and we are all big movie lovers. In the early days, he (thankfully) slept through it all, but as he’s grown, he’s begun to really enjoy going out to the movies. These days, he happily pops into his seat with a bucket of popcorn and a huge smile on his face, and especially loves animations and superhero movies. It’s a big treat for all of us to go to the movies as a family! (We especially like AMC’s early showings: every movie before noon is just $6!)

Of course, movies are even better when they are totally free. Every summer, Katy’s big movie theaters all host free or low-cost showings for families. This summer, Alamo Drafthouse is screening classics like Mary Poppins, Annie, and Space Jam. Santikos and Cinemark are showing recent releases including Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, Rio 2, and The LEGO Movie. Alamo and Santikos movies are totally free, and Cinemark showings are just $1 per person (or even less if you buy a movie 10-pack).

If you haven’t taken your baby to a movie yet, these free showings are a great opportunity to give it a shot! You’ll be in a family friendly environment with plenty of other moms and dads who have been there, and won’t shoot you dirty looks if your baby gets a little fussy. (Of course, if a few whimpers turn into full on wails and disruption, you should step outside to calm your baby down.) Remember to bring extra bottles and pacifiers or be prepared to breastfeed (trust me, no one will notice or care — it’s dark!).
