moviesLast week I took my kids to the movies on a weekday morning and it cost $5 per person — $5 for a 10:30am movie! I couldn’t believe it. I realize I’m no longer a spring chicken, and I don’t get to the movies often these days, and inflation, inflation, blah, blah, blah… BUT here’s a deal to solve that problem!
