Wehrenberg Theatres Family Summer Series

By

Who doesn't like to see a movie for free? Each summer, local Wehrenberg Theatres show free movies the whole family can enjoy. The Family Summer Series is your chance to get out of the heat and see a popular movie without spending any money.

The Wehrenberg Family Summer Series is just one of many free events happening in St. Louis in the summer. For more ideas, check out Free Summer Movies and Live Theater and Free Summer Concerts and Live Music.

When and Where:

The free movies are shown at nine Wehrenberg Theatres in the St. Louis area. Those theatres are: Arnold 14 Cine, Des Peres 14 Cine, O'Fallon 15 Cine, St. Charles Stadium 18 Cine, Town Square 12 Cine, Chesterfield Galaxy 14 Cine, Mid Rivers 14 Cine, Ronnies 20 Cine and St. Clair 10 Cine.

In 2013, the Family Summer Series runs for ten weeks from June 5 through August 15. There are no movies the week of July 4. The movies are shown on Wednesday and Thursday at 10 a.m.

2013 List of Movies:

Here is the list of movies for 2013: We Bought a Zoo, Hotel Transylvania, Parental Guidence, The Smurfs, Horton Hears a Who, Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked, Ice Age 4: Continental Drift, TMNT, African Cats and Chimpanzee. The weekly schedule of movies is different for the various theatres. To find the schedule for each theatre, see the Wehrenberg website.

Other Things to Know:

Seating for all of the movies is available on a first-come, first-served basis. The movies are quite popular so it's best to arrive early if you want to be sure to get a seat. For those who just can't see a movie without popcorn, the theatres offer a special kids combo with popcorn and a soda for $5 during the Family Summer Series.

For another inexpensive movie option, tickets to Wehrenberg's St. Clair Cine 10 are $3 everyday. You won't find the latest new releases, but the theatre does show fairly new films that have been out for a few weeks or months. Tickets on Tuesdays are even cheaper just $1.50, but it does cost extra if you want to see a movie in 3D. For more information, see the Wehrenberg website.
