Take the kids to a discounted movie this summer

If you're looking for indoor entertainment to escape the sun, check out these weekly summer movie discounts for families.

Entertaining kids during the summer time can be tough when they are all home from school. That’s why many local movies theater offer SUPER discounted movie showings during the hot season!

Now, AMC Theaters shows off a Summer Kids Camp where kids can watch family-friendly releases with a KidsPack for just $4 (plus tax). But, that’s for select locations. Turns out, NONE of the AMC theaters in Louisiana offer this…

So, I’ve pulled together a list of local theaters that have similar offers!
