In between summer vacations and kids at overnight camp, families are often looking for things to do together in the summertime — and what better way to beat the heat than to sit in a dark, air-conditioned theater for a couple hours?

With that in mind, DIRECTV has compiled a list of family-friendly fare for your viewing pleasure. Along with recommendations for the silver screen, we’ve added some TV shows — for when you want to stay home and relax. We have also included an age-appropriate range, so everyone enjoys their time and no child is accidentally traumatized by an intense film (…thanks for Return to Oz, mom).
