MONDAY AT THE MOVIES: How to ride out your Recession Woes

There used to be a time when you could buy coffee for under a $1.00 and gas was only 55 cents per a gallon. From gasoline to groceries prices have gone up, and as consumers our pay checks will only let us “consume” so much. But rest assured- the entertainment option on your budget wheel doesn't have to shrink. If you do your research, trips to the movies can still be affordable.

For example in Northwest Indiana AMC Entertainment, recently acquired theatres that were once owned by Kerasotes Showplace. To encourage moviegoers to continue to frequent the shows, AMC now offers all the latest movies for $5- if you visit on weekdays Monday thru Thursday. Movie patrons can now view movies any time their schedules permit and still pay only $5.

Mondays which used to be dull and drab at my house are now exciting. We can wind down after work by seeing a new romantic comedy or drama. I'm not much for horror or sci- fi films but the teenager in my home never tires of being scared or jostled. My fiance suffers through all of the romantic comedies with me, and as a family we can now choose from any genre or new release because the price aligns with our budget.

So outside of the inflated prices of gasoline, for $15.00 every other week our family can reconnect and watch movies the way they should be watched- on a big screen with the smell of popcorn resonating throughout.
One note of caution for my fellow Hoosiers-remember safety never takes a break. Before I rush out to take advantage of these prices, I never forget to set my home security alarm prior to leaving for the movie theatre.

We found lawrence IN adt deals. While entertaining ourselves we have to keep in mind that some people like to “help themselves” to others peoples things - thus making our bargains their opportunities.
