Have you ever heard of movie theatres showing children's movies throughout the summer at a very inexpensive ticket price? All of the chains do it. Every week, they show children's movies that have been previously released. Ticket prices are about $1 per person and they are usually on a Tuesday or Wednesday morning. And most have children's snack deals at this time. You can buy tickets, all of your kids goodies, feel like a wealthy mom and not even break a $10 bill. Even better, the movie theatre is full of moms, dads, babies and kids. Noise is expected and no one really cares. Go ahead and bring that toddler!
So here are some links to the national chains. I just printed out schedules for each of the local movie theatres in the area so I can plan on making it to some of them. Different chains show different movies so be sure to check around if you are looking for a special movie. My kids were dying to see Space Chimps. I. Was. Not. But, for $3, I can nap through that one with them.

Just visit the site, plug in your zip or state, and local theatres will pop up. And if I missed any chains, please be sure to let everyone know in your comments. We can get through the summer if we all work together. And with a big tub of popcorn, Goobers and a Coke, I know I will at least entertain myself until school starts again in August.
