Summer movie deals are coming! Local movie theaters offer weekday morning showings of recent releases at prices as low as $1 or $2. Cozy up in the air conditioning, grab some popcorn, and enjoy a kid-friendly showing of some of your family’s favorite movies. It’s the perfect way to test out the movie theater experience for young children. With these prices, you can even make it a weekly outing.

  • For the Classic Cinemas – is Charlestowne 18 not participating? Or did it just get left off because it’s too far west? It’s in St. Charles. I tried googling but couldn’t figure it out.
