Thank you AMC.

We don’t get to the movies much as a family.  In fact the last movie that we went to see in a movie theater as a family was Cars.  And that was because it was at the dollar theater. Movies are just to expensive.  With the money it takes to buy tickets, drinks and popcorn, I could have paid for 2 years of Community College!

 Just a couple of weeks ago Kellie was out of town and the kids were at my parents house, I didn’t have to work, so I headed to the Regal Cinemas.  I was going to catch The Dark Knight.  I went early in the day, as not to waste an entire day off.  I remember standing in line at 2:30 waiting to buy a ticket.  The next showing was at 3:05, no problem.  It was then I noticed that the “Matinee” pricing stopped at 3:00.  WHAT?!?!  What a ripoff!  I left the line.  And still haven’t seen The Dark Knight. 

I say all of that to say this.  Today we were walking by our local AMC theater and out of curiosity I wanted to see what was playing.  Wall-E!  Sweet, the kids would love that.  Now I’m not sure if this applies to all AMC theaters but our theater pricing is $5 all day Monday through Thursday and until 4pm on Friday.  I was blown away.  So for $20 our whole family watched Wall-E toady.

Goodbye Regal, Hello AMC.

    Go to Costco and get 2 tickets for $15.00. It’s a little more than matinee, but cheaper than the regular tickets.

    We saw Dark Knight in San Antonio, we didn’t care for it to much, it was named right, it is dark. AMC in San Antonio was $5 also, no AMC in our area 😦
