I told you last week how we have a plan to have fun this vacation. One of the action items on our To Do list is to go to the movies every week. Now while I love going “to the show,” I don’t love the prices they charge these days.

But, thanks to Regal Entertainment Group, I don’t have to pay a pretty penny to give my kids the theater experience. Every week they are offering two free films (G and PG rated) during their free Family Film Festival.

Last summer the kids and I went and saw some movies that we loved, movies that surprised us, movies that I probably wouldn’t have rented if given a choice. But, they were pleasant– and FREE surprises. And we made some great memories in the process.

This summer we’re looking forward to seeing Aliens in the Attic, a film I’ve had on hold at the library for months. No need to wait any longer. Plus there are some old favorites like Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Wallace and Gromit, and Kung Fu Panda, which will be a blast to see on the big screen instead of our itty bitty 20 inches.

There are a number of other ways to catch a free film. You just have to know where to look.

How do you like to see your films? At home or on the Big Screen?

  1. We’re drive in fans. Fortunately we live in a town with one of the few remaining drive ins.

  2. This and are keeping us busy this summer. This is our second summer taking advantage of the movies – it’s a 25 minute drive for us – and we love it.

  3. Didn’t answer the question. Sorry.

    I love the big screen, but I like being able to kick back and enjoy the family in our home.

  4. thanks for the tip!!

  5. It’s quite a drive for us to get to any of the participating theaters, but the local theater has movies on Tuesdays for kids for $1, so we do that instead. Cheaper than paying for the gas to get to the free movie!

    My kids think that going to the movies means popcorn which really adds to the expense of a movie. Tuesdays at Regal are Regal Club card member days (or something to that effect). You can get a small popcorn for $1. Each size up is $1 more. So we get a large for $3 and you can get it refilled for free. I take ziploc bags so each kid gets their own little bag of popcorn. We also take sippy cups because they’re still young enough to get away with that. Plus we don’t give them soda so I’m not buying them a drink there! Combine cheap popcorn with free movies and you’ve got a pretty sweet deal!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
