Most families don't have the funds for a full-fledged family theater. That is unfortunate, because families with young children do love to watch movies together and usually have much less money than the average family does. Many theaters today offer family-friendly films as a way to attract younger crowds and help offset some of the larger ticket prices that families pay. Here are some helpful tips on how to find the best deals and kid-friendly movies in your area.
Theatre and Comedy: There are many kid-friendly choices when it comes to movie theaters. However, not all theatres have a lot of them and some have very few. Finding a theatre that has a great selection of children's and teen-friendly movies can be a challenge, but can be worth it. Look for theatres that offer programs that are child-friendly and programs that show new or classic films in a younger-skewing way. If you know your local theater has a monthly movie night, make sure to ask if they're family-friendly and if they offer kid-friendly screenings. For example, if you go to your local movie theatre and then return for a showing of Jurassic Park the following week, then the next time you'll know whether or not it's a family-friendly movie or not. If you like movies with adult themes but want to avoid ones with explicit content, ask the theatre if they offer a movie-of-the-week offering.
Childrens Theater and Comedy: Another great place to find great deals on family-friendly movies is at children's theatres. Many of these offer little to no adult films, but still include a good number of kid-friendly movies. It's important to remember that kids (and adults) often don't know any better. Many families with young children will choose a cinema theatre based on its atmosphere and how many kid-friendly shows they'll see. A great option for childrens cinema theatres is one that's family-friendly, offers programs that are kid-friendly, and have a regular movie night that includessome movies they haven't seen before.
