Summer Family Movies for $1 (or less)

We started family movie nights at home this year since my son can sit long enough to finish a movie. We've taken him to watch a couple of movies in theaters (Kidtoon Films), but the cold, dark theater and loud sounds made him uneasy. Of course, after we leave, he always says he had a good time. The good news is that a lot of theaters near us are offering discounted price for movies all summer long. At least if we leave, I won't feel bad about paying an arm and a leg for the tickets. We'll probably check out movies at the park this year, too. Although knowing him, he'd rather run around and play.
