  • We absolutely love going to the summer kids movie programs, because they get us out of the house (and into someone else’s A/C) and they’re budget-friendly. But a piece of advice: get there EARLY. There have been so many times when we’ve shown up at the ‘usual time’ in advance for a movie only to find they’ve been sold out. :(
