Guide to Summer Movies for Kids in the Albuquerque Area


Grabbing some popcorn, candy, and watching a movie is a family past time we will never tire of. As summer rolls around, most theaters in Albuquerque have something to offer for kids to get out of the heat and into their favorite movies these next few months.

Guide to Summer Movies will be updated as more information becomes available.
