This is one of my favorite times of year – businesses are starting to roll out their Summer 2014 freebies! The first I’ve come across just happens to be one of the best. The Grand 14 movie theater at Market Commons just released their line-up of free summer movies for kids.
All movies run on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays with a 10 a.m. start time. There is no charge and the theaters offers a $1 drink and $1 popcorn special for these shows.

What Grand 14 has done in the past is show the film in multiple theaters with staggered start times. When you arrive, the usher will tell you which theater to enter. What’s beautiful about that is if you’re running late, you often won’t miss the beginning. Also, staggered start times means less time in lines at the concession stands and in the bathroom when the film ends. Perfect, right? I think so too.
