Family Flick Picks for Fall

Fall movies

School is back in full swing, and if you and your kids are looking for a break already, how about a trip to the theater during Fall movie season? There are great flicks this Fall for kids of all ages, from Ralph Breaks the Internet for the young ones to Fantastic Beasts and Venom for the older kids.

Take a look and see which films pique your interest, and look under “Also Recommended” for other films/books/games you might enjoy. We also like to look up movies before we go see them on Common Sense Media – they offer a great breakdown of almost every aspect of a movie from language, violence levels, and other questions parents might have.

Finally, we’ve compiled a list of theaters in Huntsville and more about the benefits of enjoying movies together as a family. Check out our list and happy viewing!
