FREE or $1 Summer Family Movie Guide

June 3, 2021

Did you know that many places in western PA, including right here in the South Hills of Pittsburgh, offer free or super low cost movies in the summer? What could POSSIBLY be better than that?! How about having all of that info in one place for easy reference?! While we aim to cover the South Hills area, we will include other free movies in the Pittsburgh areas that we believe our readers will make the drive for.  

We suggest that you:

(1) Bookmark this guide and check back often. We'll continue to add free and cheap movies as we learn of them.  

(2) Click on any of the pink movie links to be taken to details about that specific movie date, and you can add it directly to your Google or Apple Calendar. 

(3) Contact each venue directly with questions about their offerings or to verify times. 

(4) Share this with other parents who might be looking for some low cost fun this summer!


Check out what our communities have to offer this summer and see what movies are playing each week.  AND...Don't forget to check out the Macaroni Kid Calendar of Events daily and subscribe to our weekly newsletter to Find Your Family Fun® so you don't have to hear "I'm BORED!" all summer long!

Do YOU know of more free or low cost movies this summer in your area??  If so, let us know the details HERE, so we can get them added!
