Movies have gotten to be an expensive activity for a family. Let’s see – family of 4 – $7.50 each on average? That’s $30! I hardly ever go to the full price theatres anymore. And certainly since our belts have tightened with my husband’s unemployed status, we have cut waaay back on those luxuries. However, that does not mean I have stopped going to an animated film on a hot afternoon with the kids!
Have you ever tried the movies at Elvis Cinemas? Tickets are $2.50 each before 6pm and $3.50 each after 6pm. The movies they show are about 6 weeks after they were first released into the “full price” theatres, but hey, my kids can be patient for that kind of money! PLUS, I just realized that there is a buy one/get one free coupon for admission to Elvis cinemas on the back of my King Soopers receipts! Total cost for an afternoon flick? $1.25 per person! How can you beat it?
The locations in the Denver metro area are:

I do want to caution you that Elvis cinemas are not on par with AMC or the other full price theatres. For the difference in price, you do give up some comfort in the seats and have to be able to tolerate a “dingier” feel to the theatre.
Last movie I saw there? How to Train your Dragon I highly recommend this movie if you haven’t seen it. We will definitely be adding it to our family DVD collection this year.
Current kids flicks playing there (as of 8/22) are Shrek Forever After, Toy Story 3, and Marmaduke.
