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. (The popular cinema has a new location in Westminster opening soon.)
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 to local non-profit organizations.
Starting June 3, the flicks run Monday through Friday at 11 a.m. Tickets are available the day at the lobby box office or online. A new film plays each week.
Customers are encouraged to arrive early to enjoy a pre-show full of laugh-inducing, family-friendly shorts — all in an air-conditioned theater.
Times, titles and participation may vary by location, so please check first.

Week #1: June 3 to 7 – Trolls
