Pullman Village Center Cinemas does a very cool ongoing matinee series that is an amazing bargain. For $5 you get 8 movie tickets. There are 8 movies in each series, but the tickets are not designated for any movie – so you can use the tickets for whichever of the movies you think your kids will like.
This year the Summer 2010 Children’s Matinee Series started on June 22 and runs to August 12. We went to the first movie, and it is very popular, so I would suggest going at least 15 minutes early to get a good seat.
The movies are recent movies, but ones which are not in the theaters any longer. (For example, this series includes The Lightning Thief, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Furry Vengeance, Kung Fu Panda, Night at the Museum 2, Barnyard, Madagasgar 2, and a surprise film.)
The theater does a winter series, too.
