I’m partnering with Marcus Theatres to bring you all the summer fun this year!
Going to the movies is a long standing tradition in many houses, including ours! I remember taking Jude to see his first movie at the theater a few years ago, and now Ezra is old enough to enjoy them as well, which makes for a lot more fun for our family!
We are big fans of Marcus Theatres in the St. Louis area and all the family fun they offer! From the comfortable and spacious DreamLounger seating (my favorite!), the best food and beverage options, and all the family activities, there is something for everyone this summer. Marcus Theatres is a perfect match for us because they have eight first-run locations in the metro St. Louis area, including Chesterfield, Des Peres, O’Fallon (IL), Ronnie’s, and St. Charles Cinemas.
This past weekend we headed to Marcus Theatres in O’Fallon, IL to see Toy Story 4! The boys had the best time sitting in the giant loungers and eating their weight in popcorn.
I only ugly cried twice during the movie (is that even a surprise) and the boys are still talking about Buzz, Woody, and Duke Caboom!
We had the best time as a family and can’t wait to see our next movie at Marcus Theatres!
Whether you’re dodging the rain, escaping the heat or just looking for a relaxing escape, Marcus Theatres has all kinds of affordable family fun this summer! Here are a few of the highlights:

The Marcus Theatres App
One of my favorite parts about Marcus is how easy their app is to use. I can easily track my Magical Movie Rewards as well as buy tickets to a show all from my phone. You can easily select your theater location and then pick your seats, plus there are no extra fees for rewards members or paper tickets to lose. I’d highly recommend this app to anyone going to the movies.
