Thanks to Alamo Drafthouse Cinema (7301 S. Santa Fe Dr.) in Littleton, families have another option for low-cost family-friendly flicks this summer. From June to August, the cinema will open its Alamo Kids Camp and screen a kids flick every week. Admission is only $1, $3 or $5 per person — you decide how much you want to pay! (To be fair, we think adults should probably pay $3 or $5 each and kids just $1 each.) All of the ticket sales will be donated locally to HopeKids Colorado, Douglas County Libraries and Girls Inc. of Metro Denver.
Starting June 5, the flicks run Monday through Friday at 11:30 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 – The Pirates! Band of Misfits, Minions, Matilda and Zathura: A Space Adventure; July – The Iron Giant, Trolls, Muppets From Space and The Spongebob Squarepants Movie; and August – Song of the Sea, Speed Racer, Jumanji and The Secret Life of Pets. 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.
