      Great idea!

    This is great! I can take my kids to see Boss Baby tomorrow morning for a buck each! We live in South Texas and temps are already in the high 90’s… the movie theatre will be such a relief!

    • Holly (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Perfect! Enjoy the show!

  3. Maria V

    The movie tickets at a $1 are only for kids? First time taking my kids and not sure if I purchase my movie ticket separate.

    • hey

      It’s $1 for adults, too 🙂 I took my girls to see Curious George today 🙂

      • Maria V

        Thank you so much! I appreciate you responding.

        • hey

    Bummer! All of the theaters in my city/state are only offering promotions mid-morning during this week. Working parents like to go to movies with their kids too 🙁 I know the theater is just trying to fill seats during slow times but it seems like Saturday and Sundays before noon would be slow too. Lately it’s been too rainy on the weekends for outdoor activities and when summer is in full swin it will be too hot (and tourisity) for many others. Posts like these remind me how much I wish I could be home with my kiddo 🙁

      There’s probably fun stuff going on in your area on the weekends! We have movies in the park on weekend evenings, etc in my area. Also weekday evenings tend to have stuff going on at the local libraries, McDonald’s, Chick-fil-A, etc.
