During Spring Break March 11-14 and March 18-21, teachers in Dallas-Fort Worth can see any matinee movie at a local Alamo Drafthouse for free.

Alamo Drafthouse's spokesman announced that the deal will be extended for four more days for teachers whose Spring Break is later in March.

The deal is good for any show before 5 p.m. at Alamo Drafthouses in Richardson, Dallas, Irving and Denton. 

Have a seat, teachers!

And why? "Because teachers need a break too!" says a press release. Let's just hope they don't run into their students at the movies.

The deal is good for any teacher, regardless of when Spring Break takes place. So, any teachers who are back to work the week of March 18 can still see a free movie if they hustle to the box office before the 5 p.m. cutoff.

Teachers are likely to catch up on new flicks but old one are recommended, too: Alamo is known for their throwback movie screenings, too. 

Alamo has been running freebies for teachers since 2015. They've also done Teacher Appreciation Wednesdays in the summertime, a popular perk for the people who educate our kids.

To participate, teachers need to show a faculty ID. Homeschooling parents can bring documentation and they'll get a free movie, too. The deal is good for one ticket per day during Spring Break.
