Summer Movies 2017

Do you remember that song “Let’s Go To the Movies”  from the 1982 Annie movie? I sing that song (usually in my head . . . but sometimes aloud . . . my kids love that) every time I go to the movies. There’s something magical about seeing a film on a big screen. This summer we can share that experience with our children for cheap, sometimes even free. Say what! Check out all the cheap and free summer movies available for families during the summer of 2017.
