Cheap summer movies & Sensory Friendly Screenings

I’ve been making it my mission in life to see if I can get Cars 2 movie tickets, and possibly some accompanying merchandise, for as cheap as possible or even free. I’ve entered every contest I see. Then, I thought to myself, “Self, you haven’t done your annual post yet on the freebie summer movies for kids.” I started doing internet searches on the free/cheap movies.

Unfortunately, AMC has discontinued their Summer Movie Camp program and will no longer be doing the $1 movies. Website says it’s due to low attendance. They are continuing with their partnership with the Autism Society of America to offer Sensory Friendly Screenings, and have a great assortment of movies.

 Regal is still doing it, 10 am on Tuesdays like before. I’m not very eager about any of their selections, but for $1, I’ll probably take them once or twice. At the very least, it will expose them to what it’s like to be in a movie theatre and behave.

Here is the schedule for the Brandywine Town Center theatre. I clicked on a few others & they were all pretty similar, same assortment of movies.

  1. Muppets From Space and Charlotte’s Web are both good. =) Dylan saw Yogi with FIL so I can’t tell you if it was any good. We recently Netflix’d Legend of the Guardians, it was an oddly intricate plot for a child’s movie, based on a series of books. You can probably skip that one.

    • The boys are still really into Sesame Street, so I may take them to the Muppet ones. Hey, for a buck, why not, right?
