I don't know about you but since the pandemic, I have really missed the experience of enjoying a movie in the theater. When my daughter was young I especially enjoyed taking her to the movies. If you and your kids enjoy the cinematic experience, you don't want to miss out on the Family Film Festival being hosted by Showplace Cinemas.

Each week the Showplace Cinemas is hosting a different family-friendly movie at a discounted rate so families can enjoy the movie experience without breaking the bank, which of course, is a win-win! The kids get to go see a favorite movie at the theatre, complete with popcorn and a drink, and you get to save a little cash. Everybody wins.
