Reading a book can get kids into a select movie for free. Every Wednesday from July 5 to July 26, Farmingdale Multiplex Cinemas and Island 16 Cinema De Lux present Bookworm Wednesdays, designed to encourage summer reading.

Kids who bring a book report form (downloadable on Showcase’s website and available at a participating box office) to the designated film will get free admission for themselves and adults and children under the age of 6 who accompany them.

Children who wish to participate but are not yet reading on their own are encouraged to draw a picture about a story an adult reads to them.

Here is the Bookworm Wednesdays schedule of films; all of them begin at 9 a.m., and all are rated PG:

July 5: “Ice Age: Collision Course”

July 12: “Goosebumps”
