Guide to Albuquerque Area Summer Movies 2018

Grabbing some popcorn, snuggling up under a blanket, and letting the film roll is one of my favorite parts of summer. Thankfully Albuquerque has so many fun movie-going options for cheap–and some even free. So grab the kids and your favorite movie snack, and head out to experience the magic of movies with the whole fam in our wonderful city.
