I am very excited about a cool thing to do this summer - go to the movies! Charlotte has yet to experience the whole "lets go to the movies" thing - tickets are so expensive we didn't want to chance her not liking it or being too loud and having to leave!
I think this is the perfect way to introduce her to the theatre - Carmike Cinema's Summer Kids Series! Tickets are just $1 per person and the theatre will be filled with other kids and parents so she won't have to be so very quiet! Even if we do have to leave, we have only wasted a couple bucks and not $20+ They even have a $4 kids bucket with popcorn, drink, and fruit snack. How cute! Movies will be shown Thursdays at 10:00am - perfect timing to fit in that afternoon nap still.
We have tons of friends that want to go too, my sister is home for the summer, my Mom usually has Thursdays off, Jeff can always steal away from his work for a couple hours, and of course I have Thursdays off! Looks like you can find us at the theatre most Thursdays :)
You can go here to find out more about this great program, I went ahead and called our local theatre Thoroughbred 20 in Franklin/Cool Springs to get exact movie dates. Starting Thursday June 9, they will go in this order:
Hotel for Dogs
How to Train Your Dragon
Kung Foo Panda
Monsters Vs. Aliens
The Last Airbender
Obviously some of these movies are too old for my 2 year old daughter, but I think there are quite a few we can go too! If you have any opinions on them (especially for a 2yo girl) please chime in! If you are local and would like to go to the movies with us sometime, let's chat! Charlotte and I would love to have movie friends.
So to recap: $1 per person, per show at 10:00am on Thursday's starting June 9! Whoohoo!
Regal Cinemas is also having a $1 movie program, called Summer Movie Express, on Tuesday and Wednesdays at 10:00. The Regal Cinemas that is closest to me is not showing these movies, so we would have to go to Green Hills. A possibility if we really want to see one of these movies, but I think we'll be good with the ones in Cool Springs :) You can go here to find out about their program and what theatre is closest to you! Here is a peek at the Green Hills line up:
