Summer is almost here and there's no doubt kids are looking forward to the end of the school year. Parents on the other hand are not quite as excited because it means they need to find something to keep the kids occupied every day while they're at work. While day camps, swimming, and other outdoor activities are always an option, those can be expensive. Fortunately, southern Indiana theater chain, Showplace Cinemas is offering a relatively inexpensive way to keep them entertained for a couple of hours with the return of their $1.50 Summer Family Movie Festival.

The eight-week festival will feature family-friendly movies each week, all of which have had previous theater runs. Showings will start at 9:30 AM each week beginning June 6th at each Showplace Cinemas location on the following days:

  • Tuesdays: Newburgh, Henderson (Kentucky), and Princeton
  • Wednesdays: Evansville East, Connersville (Indiana)
  • Thursdays: Evansville North, Harrisburg (Illinois), Jasper
