TEMPE, AZ — With school almost out for the summer, you may be looking for ways to keep the kids entertained without spending a lot of money.

How about going to the movies? Sounds expensive, and between the tickets, popcorn, and candy, a morning or afternoon outing can quickly add up. How do ten movies for $5 sound?

Pollack Tempe Cinemas, the discount second-run theater in Tempe, recently announced the return of its "Summer Movie Club," where it will screen one kid-friendly movie (rated G or PG) each week for ten weeks. The lineup includes "Hotel Transylvania 3," "Monsters vs. Aliens," "Small Foot," "Boss Baby," and "Megamind," plus five others.
