The Dickinson movie chain offers a Summer Vacation Movie Series for kids where they show movies twice each weekday. (These aren’t first run movies; they’re recent G and PG movies like Cheaper by the Dozen and Madagascar.) Season tickets are $9 for 10 admissions and single admission tickets are $2 each.
My plan was to take the boys and buy the $2 tickets, which I thought was a great price. We were even able to find a movie that five of the six boys had not seen. When I checked with the box office, I was told I could buy a season pass for $9 and use 7 of the 10 admissions that day. In other words, the season pass didn’t have to be for just one person…it could be used by multiple people for the same movie.
So I was able to get all seven of us in for the birthday movie and I have three passes left over that my kids can use through the rest of the summer.
Other theater chains offer similar programs and some even offer a free movie one day a week. These are all great for a summer birthday party that won’t break the bank or even just a cool day out with your kids!
