How to See Movies in Theaters for $1 This Summer

You can soon treat the kids or grandkids — or perhaps just the kid in you — to a flick on the big screen for $1 or less.

Cinemark’s annual Summer Movie Clubhouse program starts up again on Monday. It runs for 10 weeks — through Sept. 8 — and features a series of 10 kid-friendly movies that you can see for next to nothing.

The cost is $1 per movie per person if you buy tickets at the theater box office on the day of a showing.

The cost works out to 50 cents per movie if you buy a 10-week punch card, which costs $5. Punch cards are available at the box offices of participating theaters — while supplies last, Cinemark says.

Summer Movie Clubhouse titles and dates may vary from theater to theater. All participating theaters are listed on the “Print Your Schedule” webpage, from which you can click on a location to view its titles and dates.

Cinemark has locations in most states, but if you don’t live near one — or just want more cheap entertainment options this summer — check out AMC Theatres’ Summer Movie Camp. The cost is $4 per movie, but that price includes a KidsPack from the concession stand.

For a list of locations participating in AMC’s Summer Movie Camp this year, see the chain’s Summer Movie Camp webpage. Click on a particular theater to see its titles and showtimes.
