When you’re in need of a boredom buster for the kids and a break from the heat, there’s nothing better than cooling down in a movie theater with some popcorn and some laughs. Free and discounted summer movies offer a great way to keep the whole family entertained and occupied for a few hours, while giving mom and dad a little break. And lucky for us, we’ve got plenty of great flicks in store for July.
