Even though Summer Vacation is still a couple of months away, it's not too early to starting thinking about fun, and preferably cheap, activities to keep the kids from making you pull every last hair out of your head while they're out of school. Fortunately, Showplace Cinemas has you covered with an eight week run of family-friendly movies for just $1.00 per ticket!

Showings will take place on Tuesdays at Showplace East, Wednesdays at Showplace Newburgh, Henderson, Princeton, and Connersville, as well as their Harrisburg, Illinois location, and Thursdays at Showplace North beginning June 4th. All showings are scheduled for 9:30 a.m. each day.
