$1 Summer Movies

Summer vacation is on the horizon with just a few weeks of school remaining. You know what that means. Kids whining that there is nothing to do about two weeks into summer vacation. We have just the answer for you – summer movies at discounted prices to keep the boredom at bay from two of our favorite programs!

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema

All summer long you can enjoy classic and family favorites for just $1, $3, or $5 – your choice – with the Summer Kids Camp.

All proceeds benefit local non-profits, so whether you choose to spend $1 or $5, your ticket helps contribute to our expected goal of donating $100,000 to over 35 non-profits nationwide! See our list of beneficiaries below!

Catch a returning blockbuster, share a modern classic, or help fuel summer reading with a rollicking book adaptation from our handpicked selection of films for children ages 3 – 12! This year’s slate of blockbuster new releases a little too PG-13 heavy? We’ve got you covered with big screen offerings better suited to younger film fans. Here’s this summer’s lineup:


  • The Pirates! Band of Misfits
  • Minions
  • Matilda
  • Zathura: A Space Adventure


  • The Iron Giant
  • Trolls
  • Muppets from Space
  • The Spongebob Square Pants Movie


  • Song of the Sea
  • Speed Racer
  • Jumanji
  • The Secret Life of Pets

Kids Camp shows take place every day (with some exceptions) in matinee time-slots, at almost every Alamo Drafthouse location from the beginning of June through August. Age policies for Kids Camp vary by market, so check your local Alamo Drafthhouse. Normal No Talking/ No Texting rules do apply to all Kids Camp screenings. Families can buy tickets — choosing from $1, $3, or $5  — online to reserve seats in advance here.
