Well, summer is back and that means it’s time again for free summer movies at the theaters. While very few places still do free movies, several of them do offer inexpensive movie options for the summer months. But with inflation didn’t we see that coming? Seriously though, why is it so expensive for groceries and gas?!

Anyway…

Here is my list of what I’ve found so far this year. I know I haven’t been blogging anymore, but I’ve had several people asking lately (I mean you Erin H. and Becky D.) that I decided to post it for everyone. If you know of any others please let me know and we can add it to the list.
