Walking to the Theater

Don't you love free things? Even better, free things that you can do with your children? And the best this summer, doing something free with your kids in AIR CONDITIONING? That deserves a Dang!

A huge THANK YOU to those who brought free Wednesday family movies to our lovely, work-in-progress, small town theater! The girls and I have loved the 10:00 a.m. shows, and how wonderful to see so many in our community taking advantage of this gift.

Our little theater is slowly but surely being lovingly restored to its original state. It speaks loudly of the volunteers in our county who work so hard and give so much so that we all can enjoy first run movies on the weekends with our families.

Here are some snapshots I took this morning as we went in for the last movie of the summer, How to Train Your Dragon" We LOVE that movie, and what a great message it has! I know this free movie series ran in several communities. As you look through the pictures, pay attention to the price for goodies. Can't beat that in the big towns! The prices stay the same for the weekend with admissions $5 for adults and $3 for children!
Can we say "WOOOOOO!!!!" Thanks again Town of Fowler and all the volunteers who worked concessions this summer. YOU ROCK!

  12. What a lovely post. We live in a small town and also had a very cute little theater like that one. They only payed movies a few days a week and it was just $3 per person. Just as the summer began the place next to it burned down and so did a bit of the theater. They spent the summer trying to get donations to get it back and up and running but it's still not open.

    We are really bummed because being such a big family (9 total) its too expensive for all of us to go to a regular theater. So we hope that soon they can get the funds and give us back our movies at our sticky little theater.

    Well have a great day and thanks for such a nice post.

  13. That is awesome! Sometimes small towns although quaint, just don't have enough to entertain kids so they aren't started box fires out in a field somewhere. LOL. That is so neat!! Thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting!! Appreciate it.

  17. We have a little theatre here, too.
    The best part is in the last year they've started having first-run movies--FOR CHEAP!!
    The matinee is only $3!
    So, we've actually been going to the movies once in a while.
    I loved seeing Alvin and the Chipmunks (well, not the seeing it part) with only two other people in the joint!
