Discount Movie Theatre Tickets for the Family & Students
Typically May should be full of sunshine and flowers, however this year instead there have been mud puddles and rain. So what is a family to do when they get rained out? What about heading to the movies?
Get your family 30% off discount movie tickets!
Last Saturday, my husband and I took the kids to the Rave Ann Arbor 20 (4100 Carpenter Rd., Ypsilanti) for a family date night at the movies. While I've been to the theatre several times, it is always nice to notice that the staff and management are always friendly and helpful, while the premises is clean (including restrooms). I like to see too that there are always a variety of family friendly movies and movie showtimes to accommodate almost everyone! This May, to help families out, Rave Motion Pictures is offering a special family bundle for discount tickets and snacks.
Through May 31, at the Rave Ann Arbor 20, families can receive 2 adult tickets and 2 child tickets with 2 medium popcorn bags, 2 medium candy choices and 2 medium and 2 small drinks for only $50.50. That’s a great discounted savings - 30% off - of the original $71.50 price. Currently the movie theatre is running the family-friendly blockbuster movies: African Cats, Rio and Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil is playing with new movies including Kung Fu Panda 2 opening later this month.
For a parents perspective, it is good to note though that the family deal does NOT include 3-D movies. Moms and dads might also want to prep the kids that the medium candy choices are the ones on the top shelf too. There was some major disappointment by my children to be "limited" by candy choices however they could have had good old standards like M&M candies, Skittles or Starburst.
Make sure go get your movie theatre discount before May 31 - Ann Arbor has rain predicted for the weekend, so how about taking the family to the show?
