Kids See Movies Free with This Sweet Summer Deal

Cartoon Network Presents Summer MovieCamp at AMC Theatres

May 31, 2005

Here’s a summer camp that all kids will be begging to attend: AMC’s Summer MovieCamp 2005.

AMC Entertainment Inc. and Cartoon Network have teamed to offer this eight-week community service program in 45 U.S. cities.

The Summer MovieCamp program presents free G- and PG-rated Hollywood movies that have proven to be kid favorites on the big screen every Wednesday morning at 10:30 a.m., beginning in June and running through August (dates vary by market). Seats are offered on a first-come first-served basis at 128 participating AMC Theatres with doors opening at 9:30 a.m.

Designed to create a fun-filled summer camp-like atmosphere in theatres, Summer MovieCamp encourages kids to be kids. Prior to the movie, camp counselors (designated AMC associates) will provide entertainment along with some surprises. And as in the golden age of family movie-going, Cartoon Network will provide original animated pre-show entertainment onscreen featuring top properties such as Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi, Codename: Kids Next Door, The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy and its’ newest series, Camp Lazlo.

Cartoon Network will further support the Summer MovieCamp experience with an extensive in-theatre presence to help promote the family offer throughout the summer including theatrical-size posters and standees showcasing Cartoon Network’s hottest original shows as well as characters which will be displayed in lobbies at all participating AMC theatres. The standee will include a movement-activated music chip to play Cartoon Network’s theme song for summer ’05.
