2019 Cheap and Free Summer Movie Guide

June 13, 2019


Free (or cheap) movie showings of kid-friendly films make for great fun during the summer months without breaking the bank. Not only is it refreshing to escape the heat in an air-conditioned theatre, who doesn't love seeing a movie on the big screen? Or how about an outdoor movie, watching the moving pictures while stars shine above in the evening sky?

There are plenty of movie showings to choose from this summer in the Western Piedmont.  Here are the schedules for Summer 2019... and we'll be adding more as they are released! You'll find all of these showings on our calendar under the appropriate dates. If you know of any other programs not mentioned here, please email me.  Please keep in mind that while every effort is made to provide the most up to date information, events are not confirmed after being added and are subject to change. We always suggest checking with the host prior to heading out.
