Movies on a Budget


Going to the movies has always been one of my favorite ways to spend a fun evening out.  As a mom of four, going to the movies does not happen very often because with snacks the movies can cost my family of six over $70.  For me that is just too much money to spend on one evening of fun with my family.  There are
