Kids will be out of school soon. Give them something to do for a few hours every week by taking them to see a movie. Several cinemas across the Ark-La-Tex host a Summer Movie Series. For a very small price (one theater offers free screenings), kids can watch some of the funniest films from the past few years in a cool environment. Don’t forget to send some money along with them. The concession stands will be open for popcorn, candy, drinks and more!
The cost to attend is only $1 per person. Attendees can also purchase a punch card for the ten-week series. You can also see all 10 for $5. The series begins May 27 and runs through September 8, 2019. Films include 10 different movies: “Despicable Me 3,” “Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch,” “The Lego Movie” and many more. Each film will be shown on three days at 10:00 am.
