Marcus Theatres Kids Rule Summer Movie Series 2011

The popular Kids Rule Summer Film Series will be back again at Marcus Theatres in 2011.  From June 21st through August 11th, select Marcus Theatre locations will be showing eight kid friendly movies on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings at 10am.  In addition to expanding the series from two to three days per week, Marcus Theatres also reduced the admission from last year ($2.75) to $2!  However, popcorn was included with admission last year.  It appears that popcorn is not included with admission in 2011.

Another nice perk is that vouchers for free admission will be available at participating American Family Insurance agent offices.  Visit the American Family Kids Rule website for more information on how to pick up free vouchers.
