Thanks to Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Denver (4255 W. Colfax Ave.) and Littleton (7301 S. Santa Fe Dr.), families have cool option for low-cost family-friendly flicks this summer. From early June to mid-August, the cinema opens its Alamo Kids Camp and screens a kids flick every week.
Admission is $1, $3 or $5 per person — you decide how much you want to pay! (To be fair, adults should probably pay $3 or $5 each and kids just $1 each. However, it’s completely up to you.) All of the ticket sales will be donated locally to non-profit organizations.
Starting June 4, the flicks run Monday through Friday at 11 a.m. Because the cinema chain offers lots of special programming, showtimes may vary. Double-check before making plans. Tickets are available the day at the lobby box office or online.
Customers are encouraged to arrive early to enjoy a pre-show full of laugh-inducing, family-friendly shorts — all in an air-conditioned theater.
Here’s the line-up:
June – Trolls, How To Train Your Dragon, The NeverEnding Story and The LEGO Movie
July – The Muppets Take Manhattan, The Land Before Time, Monster vs. Aliens and Sing
August – Paddington 2 and Despicable Me
The movies are open to ages 3 and up. (No infants, please.) Plus, all children must be accompanied by an adult. Be forewarned, the cinema’s well-known (and very popular) “No Talking” policy is still in effect. Therefore, noisy families may be asked to leave.
