On the last Saturday of every month, the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, the Austin Chronicle, Ain’t It Cool News and Big Brothers Big Sisters put on free screenings for children.  Now this isn’t your run-of-the-mill multiplex summer film series, with rerun showings of Scooby Doo and Little Mermaid. These are classic, timeless children’s films, from 50’s sci-fi, to Harryhausen classics, swashbucklers to pirates, from King Kong to Swiss Family Robinson, it’s fun for the whole family!

Every year, Harry Knowles of Ain’t It Cool News puts on a birthday party event which completely funds a year of free movie programming that is Kids Club, and we make sure that we only bring the best of the best to tiny and grown-up eyes alike!  

Upcoming Shows & Screenings

  • Kids Club: MATINEE (the movie) with LIVE SURPRISES!
    @ Alamo South Lamar

    • Saturday, August 28, 2010
      • 11:00a
      • For this VERY special screening, we won’t just be showing a movie…we’ll be PUTTING YOU IN IT! Joe Dante’s rip-roaring comedy is a true riot, and celebrates the big-timey showmanship of classic kid-friendly monster matinees. John Goodman stars as a traveling, filmmaking huckster who brings his goofball epics to towns across America, and juices ’em up with actual rubber monsters and bedsheet ghosts let loose in the auditorium! We’ll be taking up his lead and presenting this theatrical ode to craziness along with some surprises of our own (all child-safe, of course), so grab the lil’ ones, the big ones and anyone else you know that likes having fun, because we’re gonna bring down the HOUSE!

        Kid Policy: 18 and up; Children 6 and up will be allowed only with a parent or guardian. No children under the age of 6 will be allowed.
