Corpus Christi Fun for Kids Guide to Free (or Close to Free) Summer Movies

Thursday, May 11, 2017

One of our favorite things to do in the Summer is to go the movies but it can be expensive when you add up the cost of the tickets and snacks. Technically you could watch a movie at your home for free but sometimes you need to get those kids out of the house! We've got the scoop on where you can watch some family friendly movies in the Corpus Christi area for FREE or very cheap (less than $5 a person).

If you want to use the information found here, please be courteous and link back to this site. Compiling is hard work! Looking for more FREE fun? Check out 11 Fun FREE Ways To Keep the Kids Busy This Summer. If you're looking for Summer Camps, make sure to check out the Summer Camp Guide.
