So every summer there are tons of fun cheap/free things for the kids and family. Here is a list of things we hope to enjoy around here.
I'm a bit bummed that Regal Cinemas has started charging for their summer festival for kids. I know I know..$1 is still cheap, but sometimes we would go twice a week to each movie. For my family that would cost me $8 per week/$32 per month (not including the baby). Its too bad. Its not often you find people willing to offer a free service anymore. Either way, here it is.
Boise Edwards Showing are as follows:
NANNY MCPHEE RETURNS
CHRONICLES OF NARNIA
TALE OF DESPEREAUX
CATS AND DOGS: REVENGE
ALPHA AND OMEGA
DIARY OF A WIMPY KID
PERCY JACKSON & THE OLYMPIANS
SHREK FOREVER AFTER
LEGEND OF THE GUARDIANS
HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON
PIRATES WHO DON'T DO ANYTHING
NEXT. The Overland Reel Theater does $1 movies EVERY TUESDAY. This is a running deal that is always on. I may opt to do this instead. The movies are newer (not yet on DVD) and I can go anytime on Tuesday. Here is the link to their site for showtimes.
NEXT. The Overland Park Cinemas. They have the best deals if you want popcorn and a drink or candy with your movie. Tuesday shows are also just a dollar, but if you want to add two food items it is two dollars more (total $3). Here is the link.
