Illinois AMC Theatres Bring Back Summer Movie Camp

May 29, 2023May 29, 2023

Here's some great news for Illinois families; AMC Theatres is bringing back its popular "Summer Movie Camp" series featuring discounted movie passes for the first time since 2019, and several Illinois theatres are a part of it!

Taking kids to the movie theater can be a major eye-opening experience. First of all, you're taking a major gamble on whether your children will sit still enough for any of your to actually enjoy the flick. Secondly, and most importantly, it costs a LOT more than it used to go to the movies. Tickets are more expensive, even for a matinee, and don't even get me started on the cost of concessions.

Despite those two issues, going to the movie theatre is definitely something every child should experience, so we parents need to find a way to do it as cheaply as possible. That's where taking advantage of special movie theatre programs comes in.

On May 27, 2023, AMC Theatres across the nation welcomed the return of the popular Summer Movie Camp series that features $3 and $5 movie options on select dates at select theatres...

We may have missed the first few chances to save some dough, but there are still plenty more opportunities to enjoy a cheap day at the movies.

Lucky for us Illinoisans, 32 AMC Theatres throughout the state are offering the Summer Movie Camp series, including Showplace 16 and 14 in Rockford and Machesney Park. Five different AMC Theatres throughout Wisconsin are participating too! (See the full list of participating theatres, here).

The only question we have left to answer now is; how can we save money on all those movie treats? If you know a good way that doesn't involve sneaking food in with your purse, send me a message on the app. LOL!
