I love the dollar theater! Where else can you see a (reasonably new) movie with your kid for just $2? Tim and Book Boy went to see Kung Fu Panda this afternoon – they even managed to skip the snacks, so it actually DID cost them just $2 to see the movie.
The best bargain, though, is on Tuesdays, when all movies are just $.50. Last summer, Tim and BB went to two movies in one day – for just $2 total! (I believe that either snacks or lunch was involved that time, though.) What a fun, affordable afternoon.
I can’t wait until Little Sister can sit through a movie – it will be great to take four people to the movies for $4! She’s getting closer … while Tim and BB were gone today, she actually sat and watched about 30 minutes of Toy Story. (This is up from about 10 minutes.) Normally I’m thrilled that she doesn’t care much to watch TV/movies, but going to a movie is different.
Anybody else go to the dollar theater? Either way, how often do you take your kids to the movies?
