5 Tips for Taking Big Families to the Movies + Giveaway
My husband and I love watching movies. Our 6 kids love watching movies. We love going to the movies as a family, too! However, it can be pretty overwhelming waiting in lines to buy tickets and then waiting in line to redeem tickets. This doesn’t even include waiting in line for popcorn, candy and soda, but Fandango makes the movie-going process easy and fun!
It’s no secret we have a big family! You can imagine how challenging it would be to go to the movies with a big family, right? We do it all the time! Here are 5 Tips for Taking Big Families to the Movies:
1 – Decide on a movie everyone wants to see. As parents, we see everything! We see cartoons and other movies the kids love, as well as movies we want to see on our own. I especially love going to see movies as a family because I have good memories of going with my family when I was younger and hope our kids have similar types of experiences.
2 – Decide on a time and get their early. With a big family, you’ll want to get to the movie at least 10-15 minutes early (the earlier the better). Seating can be hard to find with newer movies, so plan accordingly (especially if you want good seats)!
3 – Purchase your tickets through Fandango. One of the easiest ways to purchase tickets for our big family is with Fandango. There’s no need for us to stand in the ticket line at the movie theater. We simply order our tickets online (on the computer or phone) and then we receive an email from Fandango with a scan code. When we get to the movie theater, they scan our code and we walk into the theater.
4 – Purchase a large, refillable popcorn at the movie theater. Every time we go to the movies with our 6 kids, we purchase a large, refillable popcorn. We also ask for little trays and then divide the popcorn up for each of the kids. We get our money’s worth because we always go back for a refill on the popcorn!
5 – Talk about the movie afterwards. On our car ride home, we like to ask our kids what parts of the movie or characters they liked the best. It’s a fun way to talk about the movie and grow our relationships as a family.
