Free Movies

This seems so great that I just have to mention it {especially since my recent post about Family Movies}!! I just read about this over here, but I will repost the details. AMC Theaters hosts a Summer Movie Camp every Wednesday at 10:00 am where the whole family {or group/organization~HINT. HINT.} can see a FREE movie. Of course no movie experience is complete without the right snacks, so for only $3.00 you can purchase an AMC KidsPack which includes one drink, one popcorn, and one kids-size snack. If you are a local reader, the closest theater to us that participates is the AMC South Barrington 30 . You can view the movie schedule here. I think Charlotte's Web on August 1 sounds especially appealing. Hope this helps you have some frugal summer fun ;>)

Thanks to Alicia's comment, I am editing this post to add that Regal Cinema in Crystal Lake also has free movies for the family as well. Much better since it is so much closer {to many of you local readers}. You can also check their home page to see if a Regal Cinema near you is participating. It doesn't give any information as to snack deals other than saying "Kids Meals Available". Here is the link to the movie schedule. The other great thing is that they show them on Tuesdays and Wednesday mornings at 10:00 am and there are two movies to choose from. The two movies consist of one rated G and one rated PG--great if you have an older set of children. There are at least four movies that I would love to take the kids to go see. Thanks Alicia for the tip!!

Thought you might be interested to know also that Crystal Lakes Theatre also does this, but I don't know about the snack thing. And once a month for the summer at Emrickson park in Woodstock they are having an outdoor movie night. This Friday is Open Season, Next month is ET and August is Charlottes Web! :0)

Amen! We go nearly every week! (if we can) I like the $1 movie myself cause the popcorn and drinks are $1 also. But sometimes it depends on what they're showing. You know I even discovered a $1.50 movie theater in the next town for all ages all the time. The catch is they haven't updated the building in if you are any bigger than my husband, then you won't fit in the seat! Still, if it works out, there is no better deal.
