Movie Night...

Last night my husband and I headed to the movies to see Source Code. Although the movie was pretty good, it's funny to think we paid $45 for a movie that only lasted 94 minutes.

The tickets were $20 and snacks were $25... and let me just say that I cringed at paying $25 for 2 large drinks, 1 small popcorn, and nachos. The kicker is that everyone knows they get over on you at the concession stand, yet most of us continue to buy snacks. In the future I think I'll head to Walgreens and stock up on snacks and bring a bottle of water.

Between streaming movies online from our Playstation 3 and having DVDs dropped in our mailbox, Netflix really has been a Godsend. I'm on the hunt to revise our household budget and save wherever we can. I really suggest any movie lover get a Netflix membership... it's awesome!

Did anyone catch any good movies this weekend?

I'm the Netflix queen! I lot of foreign movies on there. I go to the movie theater as a treat, and pre-plan to spend the extra money for food...and then I go to the matinee at that.

My job has $6 movie tickets for movies that are 2 weeks old or older. That's a pretty good deal and yeah, the concessions suck.

P.S. I love this... said...

I only go to the movies during matinee times and typically will bring my own snacks and drink.. from the Dollar Store, right next door. But I always have to have nachos at the movies. I can't skip it.

I live in Indianapolis and we are fortunate to have a drive in theater still. Two movies for 10 bucks a person. They have snack at the snack bar and I do a lot of times go and get something there to support them (they don't really make much money off the movies), but a lot of times we will bring our meal. I love the drive in, it is our summertime date night!
