Going out to the movies is a fun outing, but it can get expensive!!  Lucky for us there are several theaters in the area that have come up with specials to attract parents and kids.  Here’s the scoop:


Cinemark 10
1818 Coit Road, Plano
New but not brand new movies at a steep discount (called the “dollar theater” even though it’s a little more than that).  You can also sign up for weekly emails that include concession coupons.
