Discounted and Free Kids Summer Movies 2023

I made a list last year 2022 HERE, so I figured it was time to update. Certain places haven't updated their list like UTEP, so I'll update as summer progresses.

Seeking activities that not only entertain children but also provide respite from the scorching El Paso Summer Heat can be quite a challenge! Fortunately, there are various movie theaters and parks throughout the city that have come to the rescue by offering free and discounted movies for the summer. These options are not only enjoyable for kids but also friendly to your wallet, with ticket prices ranging from free to $5.

To save you the hassle, I've taken the liberty of compiling all the movie events onto my convenient calendar, which you can access for free. Simply enter the keyword “movie” and select your desired time period (I've already set it for June), and all the relevant information will be displayed. You can consider this task done, thanks to my efforts. Enjoy! 🙂

Here is a list of all the places that have discounted or free movies THIS Summer:
