For less than what it costs to visit a big-box multiplex, families can enjoy movies in the atmospheric Fox Theater all summer long.

Movie tickets are $8 and are available for purchase at the Fox Theatre Box Office and through Ticketmaster. All tickets are general admission. Guests who arrive an hour prior to screenings can enjoy a pre-show sing-along, featuring Larry Douglas Embury on the theater’s amazing “mighty” Möller organ.

Pre-show wine tastings, sponsored by Lexus, will occur two hours prior to all 7:30 p.m. screenings. The Lexus Premiere Party experience costs $12 (in addition to the movie ticket). Select parking lots will offer $5 parking rates on movie days.

Additional August dates will be announced later, but here’s the current 2011 schedule:
