FREE (and Cheap) Kids summer movies!!

I have to thank my good friend Merrilyn for reminding me about the free and cheap summer movies around town! (And speaking of Merrilyn, can I take a minute to congratulate her and her family for getting through residency-nicely done!!!)
Anyway-Here are some fun free/cheap Movies around town this summer:

1-Rave theatres have Free Movies every Wednesday at 10 am:

For locals, there is a Rave Theater at Westroads Mall (about Dodge and I-680). In other states, check to see if there is a theater nearby on this list.

2-Great Escape Theaters has free movies Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, beginning at 9:30 am. (I have found this place to be the easiest to get into for free movies and they have been really nice in the past...just an FYI for locals)

The flyer for the local Omaha theater (located at 7440 Crown Point Ave. or near 72nd St. and Sorensen Parkway) can be viewed online here. If you are not in Omaha, you can check for a participating location near you here.

3-Marcus Theatres has $2 family friendly films each Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 10am from June 21st through August 11th. You can see the schedule here.

For local readers there are 2 Marcus theaters in Omaha. They are located at: 14304 West Maple Road, 3201 Farnam Street, & 304 North 174th Street, as well as one in Bellevue at 3909 Raynor Parkway. If you are not a local reader, check here to check for a local theater that is having this same kids movie special. (They are located in Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, North Dakota, Nebraska, Ohio, and Wisconsin.

And as an FYI, in the past I LOVED going to the AMC movies, but they have discontinued doing the Summer family movies. You can still get a much discounted price on movies before noon though. Please go here to read their statement about the less expensive movies and about why they have discontinued their summer free movies.
