There are more choices to entertain kids on the cheap this summer.
If the previously posted “summer movies for just $1” doesn’t work for parents in terms of driving distance, below are more options from a couple of different area theaters.
Muvico is offering the deal at all of their locations on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 10 a.m. through August 15. In addition to the free admission, they have a “kids tray” special with popcorn, a drink and a treat for just $3.75. Fifty cents of the proceeeds will be donated to the Will Rogers Institute.
For a schedule of screenings, visit http://www.muvico.com/SummerFilmFest.aspx.
Muvico locations include Baywalk in St. Petersburg, Centro Ybor and Starlight 20 in Tampa.
Cobb Theaters will also have free movies on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 10 a.m. at their locations in Wesley Chapel and Clearwater.
For a schedule of screenings, visit the local theaters’ home pages at http://www.cobbtheatres.com/. Titles include “Hop,” “Puss in Boots,” “The Smurfs” and “How To Train Your Dragon.”
