There are so many great things to do in summer, one of which is go to the movies. Especially on a hot day, a cool theater is the perfect place to relax! However, movies can be expensive, even if you have a rewards card, like AMC stubs (see my post “Get rewarded for shopping – updated!”). So, I have compiled all of the theaters that offer $1 movies. These are typically only offered during the summer. But check your local theater’s website, because they may offer other promotions like senior discounts, mom and baby viewings, concession discounts, etc., year-round.
Carmike – Summer Kids Series. This theater chain offers $2 movie combo, which includes movie, popcorn and drink for $2. Some theaters start June 7 while others start June 21. (Locations in AL, AR, DE, FL, GA, IA, ID, IL, IN, KS, KY, MI, MN, MO, MT, NY, NC, ND, OH, OK, PA, SC, SD, TN, TX, UT, VA, WA, WI, WV, and WY. NOTE: The Missouri location is in Warrensburg.)

Dickinson Theatres – Summer Vacation Movie Series. Prices vary between FREE and $2 per ticket.
