I have always enjoyed going to the theater to see a movie. I have many memories as a child of going to the movies with my parents. My mom would frequently take us to Tuesday night matinees (they don't do that anymore, do they?). I can remember seeing movies like Ghostbusters, Back to the Future and ET with my family. We almost always shared a stick of SweetTarts during the movie. I remember trips to the drive-in, with a brown grocery bag full of popcorn. I have so many memories of movies that seeing a movie at the theater (or drive-in) is an experience that I love to share with my children. My son's first movie at the theater was Curious George. For my daughter, it was Kung Fu Panda (she didn't choose this one and slept the last 1/2 hour, but it was her first movie at the theater). We watch a lot of movies at home, but a trip to the theater makes it all a little more magical.

What a great way to enjoy a family movie day out on the cheap. If you are like my family, we eat cereal almost every day for breakfast, so it is something that we are buying anyway. If you are fortunate to be able to buy the cereal on a sale with coupons, it only makes the deal that much better. Be sure to be on the lookout for specially marked passages next time you are at the grocery.
Courtesy of General Mills and My Blog Spark, my family received a "Movie Moment" prize pack, including 4 e-movie cash certificates and a coupon for a free box of cereal, so that we could check it out. We haven't had the chance to use the movie cash yet, but probably will use it to enjoy a family movie during the upcoming holiday season. There are always a number of family shows in theaters during that time. Who knows, maybe we will make that part of our family holiday tradition.
Thanks to General Mills and My Blog Spark, I have the opportunity to share a Movie Moment prize pack with one A Busy Mom of Two reader.
The winner will receive four e-movie cash certificates, which are redeemable for four FREE movie tickets (up to $12.50 value/each). In addition, you will receive a coupon for a FREE box of General Mills Cereal.
