Bringing the kids to the movies can break the bank – especially when you’re bringing multiple kids, or kids and friends, or the whole family.
HERE’S HOW TO GET THE BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK WHEN YOU BRING THE KIDS TO THE MOVIES
CINEPLEX FAMILY FAVOURITES
Every Saturday, there are $2.99 movies at local Cineplex Theatres. The movie tickets can be purchased in advance, online, or in the movie theatre. The movies rotate through family favourites and recent releases, and are usually something that everyone in the family can enjoy.
LANDMARK CINEMAS KIDS DAY
Sundays are Landmark Cinemas Kids Day, and to celebrate it’s thirteen dollars for admission and a snack that includes a popcorn, drink and treat for kids. To sweeten the deal, if you choose a screening before noon, parents can receive the morning discount and get a movie ticket for only eight dollars. This is a way to get everyone out to the movies, and include snacks for the kids, without breaking the bank.
USE SCENE POINTS
Collecting Scene Points through a debit or credit card is a great way to earn free movies. With regular use of the credit card, you can get enough free points to take the kids to the movies at Cineplex, or redeem for games and entertainment at The Rec Room! Movies range between 1,500 and 2,500 Scene points, depending on the type of movie being shown.
COSTCO MOVIE PASSES
Head to your local Costco store for movie passes, on the cheap. The best bang for your buck comes with children’s and youth multiple admission and popcorn combination pass, but you can also find admission for two, with popcorn and drinks, for under thirty bucks. It’s worth it to purchase these ticket packages ahead of time, and they can be redeemed in the theatre, when you want to see the movie.
