Free Family Movies at the Promenade Shops this Summer

Free family films at the Promenade Shops gets the "Mom Seal of Approval."

The FREE summer movies at the at the gets this Mom's seal of approval. They are a great way to test the waters of "is my son/daughter old enough to sit through a full movie?"

My personally tested approach, as a parent of two little people of two different ages and movie-watching attention spans, is to pair up with another caregiver with kids of approximately the same ages as mine. That way, when the younger child decides he has had enough of the film, say 20 minutes before the movie is over, and the older one assures you that his soul will be eternally wounded if you make him leave the theater, both kids can be appeased. One parent stays in the theater with the big kids, the other takes the little ones out to run around in the fountains. Problem solved. 

The bonus is no one looks at you strangely at all for packing beach towels for the free summer movies.

Once you have successfully made it through a few of these, the $3 matinee at the is the next parental step in re-entering the cinema-going populace.

Do they still start at 10 a.m.?

Good question and great catch Sue...They do still start at 10 a.m. The doors open at 9:30 a.m. Line tends to wrap around the building in my experience! I have updated the article to reflect the start time.
