We love watching movies as a family. Action movies, comedies, animated movies, whatever. We like piling up on the couch together and having movie marathons. We also like to go to the theater and see new movies. Some people think it’s a big waste of money, but it’s actually a part of our monthly budget!
We always go to matinees. Always. We have a local Carmike theater, and they even have a bargain matinee that’s cheaper than the already cheaper matinee prices, if you go between 4pm and 5pm. We don’t generally buy a lot of refreshments, as that more often than not adds up to more than the movie tickets.
One of our favorite things to do in the summer is catch the summer kids movie series. Several national chains run these summer movies. They are usually last summer’s big family friendly blockbusters. But the admission is either free or VERY discounted (like $1). It’s a good time to catch the movies you missed last year, or to see the ones that you didn’t really want to pay for to begin with.
