Alamo Kids Camp supports local nonprofit organizations

Crafted to deliver maximum fun without breaking the bank, Alamo Kids Camp pairs beloved family films with $5 tickets for everyone, irrespective of age. From June to August, movie buffs can revel in recent animated hits like the Spider-Verse series and Minions, adventurous live-action tales like Matilda and Peter Pan, and timeless classics like E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and The Land Before Time. While Alamo Kids Camp is an annual tradition, this year marks a significant shift, with all ticket proceeds channeled directly to nonprofits supporting children’s causes. Each $5 ticket purchase contributes to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in June, Shoes That Fit in July, and Big Brothers Big Sisters in August. Additionally, guests can donate $1, $3, or $5 directly to these organizations when purchasing tickets online.

Summer blockbusters and family parties

Alamo Drafthouse is the premier destination for this summer’s blockbuster family flicks. Beyond offering a delectable Kids Menu and My First Movie certificates for budding cinephiles, the cinema hosts interactive Family Parties that transform movie outings into unforgettable experiences. These exclusive screenings blend themed props and takeaway crafts with highly anticipated family films of the season, including Disney and Pixar’s Inside Out 2 and Illumination’s Despicable Me 4. Tickets and showtimes for these unique events are available.

As summer sets in and schools close their doors, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema emerges as the perfect destination for families seeking memorable and affordable entertainment.
