Austin, TX ( May 22, 2024 ) -

“Summer’s here, school’s out, and parents wanting memorable and affordable entertainment for their families need look no further than Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. Its Alamo Family Summer Fun program features everything families need to make lifelong memories, including $5 Alamo Kids Camp tickets supporting nonprofits, interactive Family Parties for some of the summer’s biggest releases, exclusive new merch for kids and adults, and a menu filled with kid-approved favorites.

Created to provide maximum fun with maximum value, Alamo Kids Camp combines family favorite films with $5 tickets for everyone – little kids, big kids, and grown-up kids. From June through August, guests can enjoy recent animated hits like the “Spider-Verse” movies and “Minions”, live-action adventures 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 the first time that all of the ticket proceeds will go directly to nonprofits supporting kids. Every $5 ticket will support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in June, Shoes That Fit in July, and Big Brothers Big Sisters in August. Guests can also give to the organizations directly by adding a $1, $3, or $5 donation to their online ticket order. Tickets and showtimes for Alamo Kids Camp can be found at

“Kids Camp has always been about giving families an affordable place to experience the magic of cinema, and the fact that we get to support these amazing organizations while doing that is exactly what Alamo Drafthouse is all about,” said Michael Kustermann, Alamo Drafthouse CEO.

Alamo Drafthouse is also the premier destination for the summer’s biggest family films. Not only does it offer a tasty Kids Menu and My First Movie certificates for first-time moviegoers, it’s throwing interactive Family Parties that turn movies with the family into unforgettable events. These Alamo-exclusive screenings pair themed props and take-home crafts with some of the most anticipated family films of the season, such as Disney and Pixar’s “Inside Out 2” and Illumination’s “Despicable Me 4”. Tickets and showtimes for these unique events can be found at

Along with its exclusive programming, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is also releasing two new must-have shirts for summer, available in adult and kid sizes.
