Update: Click here to see 2014 movie line up!

If you’re a parent with young children you know how difficult it can be here in Arizona during the hot summer months. What to do with kids indoors in Arizona during the summertime?

Well, you’re not alone, and the folks at Harkins Theatres have an awesome program they run every summer just for kids! It’s called the Summer Movie Fun program, and it usually begins in April of every year. In February, Harkins announces a line up of 10 movies, that they’ll be playing over a 10 week period, just for kids, and only $10 per child. That’s only $1 per movie!

Nearly every Harkins Theatre location participates in this program, and there are just a few things you need to know:

  • Tickets do sell fast, so make sure you purchase early
  • You’ll need to purchase a ticket for every child and each parent (all tickets are the same price)
  • A parent must accompany children
  • You must attend movies at the same theatre you purchased the tickets at
  • Children two and under are free (with a parent)
  • The movie selection is limited to “G” or “PG” rated films
