ALAMO DRAFTHOUSE ANNOUNCES
2015 SUMMER KIDS CAMP LINEUP
The heat-beating, doldrums-busting series returns with a lineup of
fun family favorites and a new choose-your-own-ticket price
option with proceeds benefiting local charities
Austin, TX – Alamo Drafthouse is happy to announce the return of its annual Summer Kids Camp screenings – now 100% better, stronger and fun-er! Programmed specifically for families, Summer Kids Camp is affordable fun for all with a mix of new favorites and classic kid-friendly films.
New for this year is a “choose-your-own-ticket price” model ranging from $1 to $3 per person – you choose the amount! This new model not only allows for tickets to be purchased online, in advance with reserved seating – parents, take a moment to rejoice here – but also 100% of ticket sales will be donated to local nonprofits helping families. Now, families can have summer fun while also helping their communities.
“Kids Camp reaches almost 100,000 kids and parents during the summer, providing affordable and fun movies for everyone,” says Director of Family & Community Engagement Amy Averett. “We are excited to grow this program to support great local nonprofits through ticket sales donations.”
Some of our inaugural nonprofit beneficiaries include: Creative Action (Austin, TX), The South Plains Food Bank (Lubbock, TX), Kalamazoo Loaves and Fishes (Kalamazoo, MI), and the YMCA (Houston, TX).
“We’re also excited about the variety of titles being offered this summer,” says Averett. From classics like MARY POPPINS and the original PARENT TRAP, to literary inspirations like MATILDA and CHARLOTTE’S WEB, there is a wide range of choices for families. Also, we know that summer’s hottest new releases like JURASSIC WORLD may not work for our younger guests. Kids Camp provides age-appropriate alternatives like THE LAND BEFORE TIME and NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM.”
