East Texas Theatres Where You Can Watch Summer Movies For $2 Or Less
In An Effort To Get Folks Out Of The House And Back Into Movie Theatres, A Couple Of Theatre Chains Announced Special Summer Ticket Pricing.
Everybody is streaming at home right now. Let's face it, its easier than paying more than $20 to see a first-run movie when you can wait a few months and see it at home for way less money.
Movie theatres are aware of this "problem" and yesterday, 2 big movie chains announced plans to make it very affordable especially for kids, to come back to the movies and away from their devices.
