While we love going to the movies, the experience is pricey. Tickets, soda and popcorn for a family of four can easily run you $100 — or more. And while movie theaters are always showing the latest in special effects, just because a movie is new doesn’t mean it’s better than those that came before it.
Films from the year 2000 and earlier might lack sophisticated computer graphics, but they make up for it with engaging storylines and jokes that have stood the test of time.
Plus, many classic, family-friendly films are making a comeback — for a whole new generation of fans. Take, for instance, The Lion King. The animated feature came to life earlier this year thanks to killer CGI and even more killer talent. (I’m looking at you, Beyoncé.)
Here are 54 other must-see classic movies for kids of all ages that are still just as entertaining as they were the day they hit the big screen years ago.
