Summer movies in the park are a classic choice to enjoy together — especially outside where they are free! And for an indoor option to beat the summer heat, movie theaters with free or bargained price summer programs are also scattered around the Twin Cities.
Whether it is movies in the park, DVDs or streaming, we tend to see the same movie offerings – a few that we can call the “movies of the year” and some classics that keep coming around. We are gathering Family Movie Night ideas into one place with short reviews, parental guidance, and links to longer reviews when we have them. I’ve also included reviews from past film festivals because many of these movies are now streaming or available through your public library. In these cases, I’ve added a language notation.
