A number of movie chains host offer free, or nearly free, children's movies in the summer.
One of those is Classic Cinemas, which recently released the lineup for its "Wednesday Morning Movie Series." Each Wednesday morning from June 12 through Aug. 7, Classic Cinemas will show a family-friendly film (rated G or PG) with admission of $1 per person.
Classic Cinemas will take reservations for groups of 15 or more (the series is popular with summer camps and daycare programs), and the group rate of $5 per person includes admission, a Kiddie Combo and reserved seating.
Classic Cinemas has theaters all over northern Illinois, including the Charlestowne 18 Theatre at Charlestowne Mall in St. Charles. Other Classic Cinemas participating include those in Carpentersville, Elk Grove Village, Fox Lake, Oak Park, Freeport, North Riverside, Naperville, Kankakee, Downers Grove, Woodstock and Elmhurst.
